NTSC Project - 650x480 instead of 720x480
on Nov 6, 2007 at 7:09:18 am

I'm making a NTSC Encore project, I've created 720x480 menus in Photoshop, however when I go into Encore, and set the project to NTSC, then import the menus, they are displayed at 100% as 650x480. I can't figure out why this is happening, any help would be greatly appreciated.

What exactly is the problem? Is it that menus are displayed with square pixels in Encore?

Thanks for the reply. The problem is that everything, not just the menus, but the video too, all appears as 650x480 instead of 720x480 in the project. 720x480 is the proper Ntsc resolution, where as 650x480 is not. How do I see if the menus are set to square pixels? I can't find anywhere to set this.

720x480 menus and video have non-square pixels.

Encore's not changing the dimensions (or pixel aspect ratio) of anything - it's doing pixel aspect ratio correction in Encore so that it looks in Encore as it will look when you view the DVD on a television. If Encore didn't do this correction, everything would look distorted.

If you want to see the menu without pixel aspect ratio correction (for whatever reasons you might have), you can do that with the PAR button on the bottom of the menu editor, which switches between corrected and not corrected.
