I'm having a problem with my HDV footage and hopefully you all could help me out. I shot on a Sony HVR-Z1U, edited in FCP and burned my .mov file to a dvd with the intention of playing it on a projector. My sequence settings are set for HD (1440x1080) (16:9) with the PAR set to HD (1440x1080), with the compressor set to HDV 1080i60. Now when I render out and check the mov file it states: Dimensions 1440x1080, codecs: Interger (little indian), HDV 1080i60, everything seems to check out just fine... and here is my problem.
When i use IDVD to burn the footage it prompts me to choose an aspect (either 4:3 or 16:9) I choose 16:9. I take the dvd and play it on a projector but the image is identified as 4:3 with terrible pillarboxing >_<. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
Should i be using DVDstudio pro, is it the projector or the dvd player that has the problem?
What are the best settings for my mov file when i burn it to DVD?
And finally is all this caused by the "rectangular pixel" issue associated with HDV?
Any help is greatly appreciated thanks so much in advanced!!
