I am creating the simplest of DVDs so that our client can play our promo film as a pitch for a job. I'm using iDVD authoring software for the first time.
I have a feeling this may have been asked many times before, but for some reason I cannot get iDVD to display my 16:9 Quicktime file of the promo film as 16:9, despite the project being set to 16:9 in iDVD and all other settings being correct AFAIK.
The offending file plays in a standalone QT Pro 7 player as 16:9.
The sequence was set to anamorphic in FCP, saved out using QT conversion in the correct specified aspect ratio. QT Pro 7 confirms this in the movie properties.
Other 16:9 files play correctly in the same iDVD project- just not my edit.
It will probably be very simple.
Thanks in advance to anyone who knows.
(my background is in UK broadcast as an editor, and before that, film)
