Different aspect ratios on same exhibition Disc
on May 13, 2011 at 9:26:29 pm

I'm preparing a Blu-Ray disc for exhibition at a local film festival, and I've run into a problem: 4 of the 5 films are in 16x9 HD, but one is 720x480 (a standard def transfer of a 16mm film).

When I previewed the disc in encore, all five films displayed correctly, but when I did a test run at the theatre, the 720x480 was distorted. The projector, which was in 16x9 mode, will not adjust automatically, nor do we want to change the projector setting in between films.

How can I add "letter boxes" to the side of the 720x480 film to make it play back correctly?

eric,
you need to be sure your SD-file is flagged as 16:9, but there are a few players, that wont display it correctly.

please look at your player-settings if it will force display to 16:9 or automatic.

cheers

danny
