Re: Should I tape in widescreen or regular

I've never had a problem importing 16:9, it's always the exporting, I've haven't been able to get the dvd player to generate the letterbox bars for a 4;3 television, it always plays smashed, like if your dvd player is set-up for a 16:9 screen and you actually have a 4:3, that effect, although it's not the dvd player it's the way i export it, i'll have to experiment or if someone has a guide that would be cool (I should say i have Final Cut Pro 4, my buddy has Adobe Premiere ? i don't remember which version), Also i have DVD Studio Pro 2 and i'll have to learn how to use that also. Anyway this could be all for nothing if i botch the intial taping anyway

Re: Should I tape in widescreen or regular

Hm, did you import it into an anamorphic project? And are you working in an anamorphic sequence? When I go into FCP4 tomorrow I'll look up my settings for my full res project and let you know what they are. The export settings probably wouldn't effect that, I don't remember anything other than what type of file and the bitrate. Did you look at the export in quicktime to see if it's letterboxed? I don't really know DVD Studio Pro myself but was able to fumble through it enough to get a playable DVD with no menus and there's a preview option you can do to see how it looks so that's another place you can check it.

Re: Should I tape in widescreen or regular

lucasweb, that sounds like a mistake in authoring or encoding the disc to DVD compliant MPEG....if you tell it to encode to 4:3 but you give it a 16:9, it'll just smash everything down. You don't want letterboxed black bars, in fact, you want true 16:9 video to display. On a regular TV, it will insert these bars when it tries to display the video, but if you play it on a computer or HDTV, it should show up as regular widescreen with no extra lines added.
