Have a project in 4:3 and guy needs it DVD letterbox. I read in this forum that quality won't be as good. Not sure if I want to try to move it to HD as I've never done that. Have enough problems already. I did a Compressor clip and it was squeezed 4:3, can I stretch this?

"Have a project in 4:3 and guy needs it DVD letterbox."

Sorry, but can you clarify? If your project is 4x3, why would he need the top & bottom cut off?

Does he want you do convert the 4x3 project to 16x9, which will reduce the image quality & cause problems with any graphics that have been placed on the video?

I'm not really following what you're after.

I need a dvd that can play in both CRT tv and flatscreen tv. I did one last month with HD & SD successfully. But this source was from a dvd demo reel that needs some cuts so it can be shown to whomever out there. I can just leave it 4:3 and have black on sides if need be. Unless there's other options.

Yes, you've just answered your own question.

Cheers
