16x9 menus for DVD
on Mar 26, 2009 at 7:33:13 pm

I was working on a DVD project, and I vaguely remember coming across some issues of using 16x9 menus on a 4x3 screen. The problem was that DVD players sometimes messed up overlay graphics for menu selections.

Does anybody know what the current issue is on that? Is it better to do 4x3 menus for overlay graphics?

Thanks,
Russ

If my videos are 16:9 I use 16:9 menus, 4:3 menus on a WS TV look stupid to me. There is a way to create 2 versions and then you tell which menu to go to based on the DVD Players setting for TV type.

The only time I have seen an overlay problem is when I use a motion menu that was not flagged for 16:9 on encode and then I make it 16:9 Letterbox or Pan and Scan within DVDSP. if I reencode the menu video correctly this problem goes away.
