Movie Expands When Burning

Question

When making a movie DVD using MyDVD the frame size of the movie expands slightly so that I lose part of the video around all four edges. Prior to burning everything looks correct using the Preview function. It appears that the burned DVD has "zoomed in" about 3% to 5% from the original file and I lose content around the edges. The movie files loaded into MyDVD are ".mov" files. Is there anyway to force the conversion or burning process to burn the DVD to the exact size as the original .mov files?

You are suffering fro TV overscan ! Read and do this (link)

 

By the way, if you are authoring the vidoe to play on a standard DVD player, those movies are converted to mpg 2 files (VOB) but that has nothign to do with the TV safe zone.

Thanks for the info, however, it just seems to apply to converting still photos into the safe zone. I'm trying to take a QuickTime file (.mov) and shrink it down to fit in the safe zone so when I make a DVD it shows all the contents and doesn't flow over the edges.

It is for video also. Create a long color panel and add the video as an overlay. Resize it down to where it all fits into the TV safe zone (you may have to play around with it to get the exact size you need. Shorten the color panel to the length of the video and then output it

 

Di you look at post ## in that thread?

 

As I said, that mov file is converted to a vob (mpg2 type) file if you author a disc.

Aspect Ratio is another factor, however, your description of losing on all sides does not lend itself to aspect ratio...

 

Easy to test out.

 

Open VideoWave (Edit Video-Advanced) and start a new Widescreen (16:9) project.

 

Add any of your MOV files into Timeline.

 

Right click the MOV file and select, Aspect Ratio Handling...

 

It will tell you what Aspect Ratio they are in and allow you to change the way they are handled. ;)

 

You cannot change an Aspect Ratio, they are LAW. But you can change how they are handled to arrive at the best compromise.
