    DVD Creation from Mediac Composer getting the right Aspect ratio

    Locked Contact

    Good Evening from Down under

    Hoping to draw on some real experience in this area. For many years I have been creating DVD's at the rate of around 1500 in the last 3 months of every year. My work flow has been rock solid. Shooting in Pal on Sony HDV cameras at DV 16.9 or what Sony refers to as wide screen on these cameras. Timeline represents these settings in format as 25i Resolution 720x576 Aspect ratio 16:9  Since the begining of my realtionship with Media Composer a mixdown and a Send to Avid DVD select wide screen in Avid DVD's project settings, and then after a little more tinkering press burn and I have a full frame 16:9 picture on my control room Monitor....Easy and Easy it was.... !

    Then a couple of weeks ago the need to upgrade the now 10 year old PC came along and I decided to go MAC.

    Producing DVD's with the available software that one can actually buy today seems to be a bit of a battle.

    So after purchasing a number of products like Roxio Toast and Burn I decided to try making the DVD's in Sorrenson 11 Pro using the DVD ISO Image _ES_ PAl and burn straight out of Squeeze. My issue is with all amounts of fiddling with Pixel Aspect / Letterbox or Pillar unconstrained in the preset etc  - I just cannot produce a full frame 16:9 result. I wondered if I could seek some assistance from, the community to run through my settings and see what I am missing to achieve that very simple 16:9 full frame result that was so simple and straight forwards with AVID DVD.

    I thought I would post this in both the Mac and PC areas apologies if thats not the done thing..

    Many Thanks in Advance

    Pete
