iDVD 16:9 woes
on Apr 9, 2009 at 8:44:52 am

Dear Forum,

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.

Andrew Parker

(my background is in UK broadcast as an editor, and before that, film)
