If you go into the dvd options dialogue, you find there a DVD aspect ratio option. This option lets you determine if a slide show on the DVD is displayed at 16:9 (widescreen) or 4:3 (standard) aspect ratio.
Alternatively: go into your settings and set 4:3 Pan & Scan or from 4:3 PS to 4:3 LB whichever your aim is or well whichever aspect of a movie you want to see.

If this helped please rate :)

Can dvd flick be set for a 16:9 aspect ratio? I don't see anything there. What is the recommended burn speed to get a clear dvd? What file type imported gives the clearest final burned dvd?


Aspect ratio is determined by the actual recording itself and that is based on whatever aspect ratio the file was recorded at. Players can change that ration on replay, but it will result in distorted images.

Burn speed has nothing to do with video clarity. The only reason to burn a DVD at any speed slower than its rated maximum is if you are having issues with validation of the burned media. If that occurs, a slower burn rate is recommended.

The file type is normally irrelevant. What really matters is the file content. What is the resolution of the recorded image? If it is only 480i, then you will have a poor clarity of video regardless of the file type. If you have 1080p video, you will have much greater clarity. Also, the amount of compression matters since over-compression of files, while reducing file size, will result in poorer video quality even at higher resolutions.

So, regardless of the file type, ensure that the resolution is high and the video compression is as little as possible to ensure best result.

Editing videos taken from canon dc100 camcorder


I see here that . . .

"The DC100 takes 3-inch Mini DVD-R/RW discs, and like most of its competitors, can fit about 20 minutes of best-quality video on one. If you choose to initialize a disc for playing in a standalone player, the camcorder writes standard VOB files; if you initialize for future editability, it records in the VRO format. Windows Media Player can play the latter if you rename the file with an MPG extension, however the aspect-ratio information gets lost--that info is encoded into a separate file--so 16:9 video will get squashed into 4:3. "

Cnet Reviews.

Your videos are recorded in the common DVD format called MP2.
They have the extention .MPG so if you copy the video files to your computer, and change the end of the filename from VOB, or VRO to an MPG then your software can recognize it as the MP2 format that it is.

There is a Windows XP program, called Windows Movie Maker, it can open your video files and provide you with most of the video editing tools.

Cheers.

Panasonic SDR-H40 video images distorted in Media Player


The camera does not write the 16:9 code properly in the mpeg so Windows media player does not recognize it properly. There is a little utility called index.zip that you can download which has a file sdcopy.exe which copies the file from the camera and properly writes the code. Then any current video editing software will recognize it and display it properly. It is also a handy utility that I prefer over the software that came with the camera.
