My Sony DCR-DVD505 is setup to produce 16:9 aspect ratio videos, and it records directly to 8 cm DVD's. They provide a software package to upload the video clips to a hard drive, but it's pretty useless for editing and can't burn DVD's on anything but 8 cm DVD's in the camera. I have Ahead software's Nero 6.6 software and I'm able to take the uploaded files and compile a DVD. It has three settings for aspect ratio (4:3, 16:9, and automatic) and if I select automatic and then burn a DVD, the resulting images are squashed vertically, leading me to believe the software has taken 16:9 video format and assumed it was 4:3 and transformed it to 16:9 by applying some 4:3 transform. What I need is for the software to simply take the widescreen video clips and burn them on a normal DVD video. Anyone with experience taking widescreen video and successfully producing 16:9 widescreen DVD's?
