Hello,

Can any one tell me where I'm going wrong with exporting from my Meida 100 edl to create a 16x9 Quick Time Movie? (I'm using Media 100 Suite) My work is all in 16 x 9 but whenever I export anything it creates a 4x3 movie. I can convert it to 16x9 in Quick Time Pro but when I send it to a conversion web site, I use BlipTV so that I can use it on my own web site, it comes out as 4x3 again. It's driving me nuts!

is this 4x3 movie looking squeezed horizontally? (Or streched vertically?)
If so, it's normal since you're outputting an anamorphic 16x9 movie.

If you want it to look "normal" on a computer screen, output to 16x9 with these dimensions :

PAL 1024x576
NTSC 854x480
NTSC 864x486

Me again, still struggling with export setting from Media 100 Suite. I'm now trying to create a DVD (PAL) that will play on a computer and in a standard, hooked up to a telly DVD player in 16x9. My project is filmed and edited in 16x9. I'm using iDVD to make the DVD. So far I can make a 16x9 DVD that is horribly cropped way beyond the safe area setting in iDVD or I can make a DVD that ends up being 4x3. Where am I going wrong?

Hi Sue,

what version of iDVD are you using? I think I remember that some iDVD versions only supported 4:3 media. Is there a 16:9 setting in your iDVD version?

Hi Floh,

I'm using iDVD6 and it does offer the option of 4x3 or 16x9.

All the best,
Sue

Hi Sue,

locate the exported QuickTime in the Finder. Open it in QuickTime Player (Pro). Under Movie Properties (Command-J) select the Video Track, and set the "Scaled Size" (under the Visual Properties tab) to 1024*576 for PAL or to 864*486 (if my math is correct) for NTSC. Save the file and open the file in iDVD again.
One additional note if you are working in NTSC: I am not sure if iDVD does the 486->480 (for MPEG2) conversion correctly. If you are seeing interlacing artifacts, you could export a DV Stream from Media 100 instead a by-reference or self contained movie. This should be in 720*480 already, which is perfect for DVDs. Then set the size to 854*480 in QuickTime Player and continue to iDVD.
