I have a lot of MOV-Files in PAL-square-pixels (720 x 576) which I want to burn on a DVD (with menu).
My first step was, that I have rendered this MOV-Files again to MPEG2-DVD (in After-Effects), so that DVD-Lab can work with them.
Now, when I watch the DVD on my TV, the sides are cutted away, so that you cannot see whats going on left and right.
Some of the MOV-Files are older and so I had placed type outside of the title-safe-area
When you play the DVD On your computer, do you see eveything (on left/right)? If so, then it's a matter of the Overscan Area -- as you mentioned, you our outside the "safe area", and with a TV you don't see all the way to the edges (due to the overscan area). The amount you don't see can vary from TV to TV (but it's generally ~10%-20% around the outer edges).
