Different aspect ratios on same exhibition disc
on May 13, 2011 at 9:26:25 pm

I'm preparing a Blu-Ray disc for exhibition at a local film festival, and I've run into a problem: 4 of the 5 films are in 16x9 HD, but one is 720x480 (a standard def transfer of a 16mm film).

When I previewed the disc in encore, all five films displayed correctly, but when I did a test run at the theatre, the 720x480 was distorted. The projector, which was in 16x9 mode, will not adjust automatically, nor do we want to change the projector setting in between films.

How can I add "letter boxes" to the side of the 720x480 film in compressor to make it play back correctly?

Put the finished master in FCP into a 16x9 Sequence.
Make adjustments/additions (black boxes)
Export a 16x9 file.
Compress for Bluray.
