Down conversion from HD (720P) to 720X480 letterbox

Hi there,

I'm finishing a project shot and edited in 720P. I want to export an .m2v in SD (720X480) in letterbox (black bands at the top and bottom) to burn to DVD. My Kona 2 card does it on the fly to my broadcast monitor BUT how can I capture this signal? If I export from my sequence I get either an anamorphic clip or a streched one, no black bars. I'm trying to avoid to sent it to my deck (DVCam-DSR-1500) and recapture it. What is the proper way to finish this??

Thanks.

Your answer is in the FCP forum. You can use Compressor to make a DVD that automatically plays full 16:9 on a wide monitor and letterbox on a 4:3 monitor.

My terminology was a little loose on that post. Compressor makes the MPEG-2 file. DVD Studio Pro can then use that asset to make a DVD which has the adaptable aspect feature I mentioned.

Thanks Tom, your answer(s) made sense. I solved the problem with DVD SP.
