Are you having Toast make a video DVD or are you wanting to convert it to some other video format? If you want to make a video DVD you don't have to do anything. Toast makes DVDs from widescreen sources so that they play back in any of three modes depending on the settings of the DVD player. If the player is set for anamorphic 16:9 video that is how it plays. If the player is set for letterbox 4:3 that is how it plays. If the player is set for full frame (pan & scan) 4:3 that is how it plays. Those instructions are written into the .ifo file when Toast authors the DVD.

Well I would like to know if Toast 11 Pro can take my 16x9 SD footage and make 4:3 letterbox. DVD's? I understand that you can set the DVD to do it… But there is a big BUT! Most of the people I make DVD's for, barely know how to turn a DVD unit. I'm going to ask them to go into the menu settings and set something? I don't think so! So if it can, how do you do it? Thanks,

Most DVDs of movies are in 16:9 format. If the people who you make the DVDs for ever watch movies on their DVDs, they've already worked out how to deal with watching 16:9 material on a 4:3 TV, whether by letterboxing or pillarboxing.

Right. Toast takes care of this by authoring the DVD to cover all these options.
