Dvd adaptability for widescreen & 4x3
on Sep 19, 2005 at 7:32:59 pm

Im currently rendering a widescreen video for a DVD that needs to play correctly on a Widescreen TV, a 4x3 TV, and a standard computer moniter.

In doing so, will I need to render various versions of the video and have my DVD encoder encode a single DVD that includes all versions, and uses the right one as the system permits?

Or do I render one version that should scale appropriately for any equipment scenario?

Do one video.

16x9 Anamorphic.

It will:
Letterbox automatically on a 4x3 TV
Letterbox automatically on a 4x3 computer crt.
Fill the screen of a 16x9 screen

Borjis,

Beautiful...thank you for the helpful reply.

One last question, what if HD resolution comes into play?

If HD comes into play it will need to be downconverted
to Standard Definition as thats what current DVD spec allows.

Because its HD and HD is 16x9, it will need to
be anamorphic 16x9 in standard resolution.
