DVD size format???
on Jan 15, 2008 at 11:01:45 pm

Hello everyone!!!

I am importing a QT movie(preset to 720X480 NTSC/DV Widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio) into After Effects and after editing I like to burn the final movie into a DVD.

I heard that most of the DVD final movs are made at 864X486, I also heard that it can be made at 720X480 size dimensions and I don't need to switch to 864X486, is that correct? if I switch sizes I will lose image and that is bad... :(

and what is the best program to put your QT into a DVD for final product to be seen in a widescreen? I heard it comes with FinalCut..but not sure where to get it.

Thank you very much!

NTSC video for DVD is 720x480. Still with that and make sure you use 1.2 aspect ratio (widescreen) in and out of AE.

864X486 is what you use when making still picts with square pixels.

Hi Michael,

Thank you for your quick answer.
I will use 720X480 then, but is still ok if I have a mix of QTs and also some still pics (Widescreen 1:2)in between?
Thanks a lot!!!
