Help! Keeping 16x9 all the way to DVD

Hi,

Can I have step-by-step instructions ASAP please?

I edited a 16x9 program that I need exported to BitVice and encoded in BitVice.

Thanks!

Paul

Hi Paul,

16:9 & 4:3 dvd files are both still just 720x576 (or 486) only the aspect ratio changes and that's just a flag in the final mpeg2 file.

So all you need to do is export (by-ref) as normal from the media 100 timeline, open this file in Bitvice, set the encoding options (Remember the Studio RGB!) and then in the aspect ratio drop down menu at the bottom, set it to 16:9.

QT or DVDSP etc will now recognise the resulting m2v as 16:9 and adjust the aspect ratio accordingly.

Paul, if it's an HD programme which BitVice will be downscaling don't forget to check the 'upper field first' box as well as the 16:9 one.
