Making a 4:3 AR display properly on a 16:9 TV screen
Posted: 12 Jun 2015 11:57 PM
Creating a DVD in movie maker has three stages, each with a choice of twor Aspect Ratios in each stage: The original Project story board, the Save Movie function and the Create/ encode the DVD. I am trying to create a DVD which will play on TV in HD. The original photos and videos have 4:3 aspect ratios. I have created the movie several times with different aspect ratios for the three parts but always (with one exception) get display in Wide Angle format when DVD is played on TV. One combination, where I used Wide angle for the PROJECT stage and 4:3 for the SAVE and DVD encoding' did yield an appropriately sized TV image but it was lower resolution than the wider screen versions.

I have been "saving the movie" in 1440x1080 or 1920x1080 in the belief that more pixels will give a better picture. Is this true for this program where a DVD is involved? Somewhere I read that the DVD was only capable of handling 720x480. Is this true? Do I need to go to Blue Ray to get true HD?
