Making 16:9 footage into 16:9 anamorphic DVD?
on Apr 10, 2015 at 3:20:08 am

Hi all,

Working on a project...

Footage is in DNxHD 36, 16:9 1920x1080

I have been requested to deliver a 16:9 ANAMORPHIC DVD. Obviously our footage is NOT anamorphic. I'm using Avid 6.5, and have access to Compressor. My only DVD authoring program is Toast 10 Titanium.

Can anyone give me a step by step of getting my cut out of Avid and made into a 16:9 ANAMORPHIC dvd?

Thanks. Quick responses necessary.

Since SD is a 4:3 resolution, anything wider was done via an "anamorphic" type solution. So when your native 16:9 footage goes to standard definition video (and DVD), it can either be:

1. Letterboxed
2. center cropped
3. Full Height Anamorphic (FHA)

The MPEG2 encoding process will flag a 16:9 source as being anamorphic and the DVD player will know what to do with it based on the settings set for the monitor attached. I have not made a DVD in a looong time, but when I did, I just encoded my 16:9 source and it did the rest. Same for 2:3 pulldown flags when source was 23.976. It all gets flagged in the MPEG stream during the transcode/encode to mp2.
