Unsquish a DVD
on Nov 15, 2010 at 4:22:12 pm

I burned my 16x9 project on a DVD. Had thought everything was in the correct ratio.

Now that it's time to send it off, everything is squeezed too narrow.

Can I copy and stretch it out to its original glory?

Thanks!

[anna leah jacobson] "Can I copy and stretch it out to its original glory?"
what do you mean by that. If your project is wrong, every copy will be wrong.

This can be several things, you made a mistake in encoding or authoring, we don't know what you did so we cannot help you unless you post info.

or

Your DVD player is set wrong. If you image looks like it is squish into a 4:3 box, everything is tall and skinny on the software player (and in simulator) you are doing something wrong. If it looks right on the computer but wrong on a player it maybe the player's settings.

It's wrong in the computer. I was just hoping there was a way to stretch the video horizontally when I copied.

No, you have to author it correctly.

Hi Anna

Michael is correct. You may be able to simply change the aspect ratio setting for each track that should be widescreen, setting it to "16:9 widescreen" and any DVD player should play it back correctly.

If that doesn't solve the problem, you'll have to investigate further to find the point in your workflow that needs adjustment.
