How to keep the aspect ratio when burning?
on Feb 19, 2009 at 3:41:34 pm

Hi everybody,
I've just tried to burn my 17,6 GB .mov export file unto a DVD via ROXIO.
Roxio did not recognized my 1024x576 proportions but actually resized the file into 720x576.

I was using roxio because I didn't want to have to go through the whole Compressor to compress my .mov file.
Question: Can I fix this problem with Roxio?
Do I have to use Dvd studio pro or Idvd?
How can I fix this problem with those?

Any help more than welcomed

If you are making a DVD, use compressor to make a m2v and ac3 file. Use DVDSP to make your DVD. Build your DVD in DVDSP. Use Roxio Toast to burn your DVD.

The steps are in the manual.

720 x 576 is the correct frame size for PAL standard def. By creating a 1024 x 576 quicktime, you have a file that will correctly display as 16:9 on a computer.

A PAL DVD requires 720 x 576 so Roxio is correctly changing the file back to anamorphic. If you want a decent DVD, you are better off making an mpeg2 file in Compressor, maintaining the correct anamorphic ratio.
