But they playback wide screen.</p> <p>Neither the 20 inch Panasonic TV, or Panasonic BD75 player has any option to change the aspect. But the Samsung 40 inch TV has. But it`s a manual option.</p> <p>Commercial DVD `s will automatically play 4x3 on both, so can anyone explain why this happens please?</p> <p>I have the box un-ticked in Vegas, where it says &ldquo;Stretch to fill screen&rdquo; and I can`t see any other boxes.</p> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/aspect-ratio-playback#comments Shiny discs - VCD to Blu ray Sun, 29 Nov 2015 17:18:09 +0000 John Disdle 1056597 at http://www.dvforums.com verbatim BD-RE problem http://www.dvforums.com/forums/verbatim-bd-re-problem <p></p> <p><a href="http://www.dvforums.com/forums/verbatim-bd-re-problem" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/verbatim-bd-re-problem#comments Shiny discs - VCD to Blu ray Sun, 22 Dec 2013 12:57:30 +0000 Roy 1055951 at http://www.dvforums.com Creating DVD from Encore (P.P5.5) http://www.dvforums.com/forums/creating-dvd-encore-pp55 <div> Hello,</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> I&#39;ve been creating review discs in Encore which I am finding very helpful to sit back, relax, and fine tune my edit after watching on a big screen.&nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> AFter making several important changes, I believe I have one more review in me before I finish up on my project, so I&#39;d like to create the best DVD possible for this. So far I have been using the standard settings in Encore and the discs are coming out... in not brilliant quality and a little rough around the edges.&nbsp;</div> <div> </div><p><a href="http://www.dvforums.com/forums/creating-dvd-encore-pp55" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/creating-dvd-encore-pp55#comments Shiny discs - VCD to Blu ray Tue, 03 Sep 2013 13:47:14 +0000 DP2012 1055809 at http://www.dvforums.com Encore CS6 version the final release of this product http://www.dvforums.com/forums/encore-cs6-version-final-release-product <div> Is the Encore CS6 version the final release of this product? <div> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Yes. The trend in the video and broadcast industry is moving away from physical media distribution. The<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; future is in cloud and streaming content. Therefore we are focusing more on products that deliver to<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; streaming services. For example, Adobe Media Encoder and Adobe Premiere Pro CC include a new<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; feature allowing users to create iPad-ready video with QuickTime chapter markers.

She&#39;s going to send it to me to have a look at.

Whilst the content is &lsquo;average&rsquo; it has been created in Encore with 18 chapters in English and the same in German. It&rsquo;s all legal to copy so I have tried two programmes but the copy failed because there is not enough room on a blank DVD. Looking at the disc content I note that the disc contains 7.26GB.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> </div></div><p><a href="http://www.dvforums.com/forums/copying-dvd-containing-726gb" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/copying-dvd-containing-726gb#comments Shiny discs - VCD to Blu ray Thu, 04 Apr 2013 16:44:41 +0000 Magic Pete 1055483 at http://www.dvforums.com First Play in Encore CS6 http://www.dvforums.com/forums/first-play-encore-cs6 <div> &nbsp;Just getting to grips with Encore CS6 and creating DVD. I have managed the menu and three buttons.&nbsp; I have set the menu to be &lsquo;First Play&rsquo; and this it does in the preview.&nbsp; However, when the created disc (RW) is placed in my domestic DVD player the menu&nbsp;doesn&#39;t&nbsp;appear as expected, just a blank screen. If I press the &lsquo;menu&rsquo; button, the menu appears, but if I press &lsquo;Play&rsquo; then the programme starts without showing the menu.&nbsp;</div> <div> </div><p><a href="http://www.dvforums.com/forums/first-play-encore-cs6" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/first-play-encore-cs6#comments Shiny discs - VCD to Blu ray Wed, 20 Mar 2013 21:08:45 +0000 Magic Pete 1055421 at http://www.dvforums.com SL or DL http://www.dvforums.com/forums/sl-or-dl <div> Hi Guys.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Have a show that lasts just over 3 hours.&nbsp; I can fit it on single layer disk in encore, but should I use</div> <div> dual layer.&nbsp; Will it improve the quality due to less compression.&nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Will customer see the difference, and any compatability problems with dual layer?</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Thanks</div> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/sl-or-dl#comments Shiny discs - VCD to Blu ray Mon, 18 Mar 2013 09:01:11 +0000 busbyvideo 1055413 at http://www.dvforums.com Creating DVD's http://www.dvforums.com/forums/creating-dvds <div> I have an edit saved on a NLE I would like to sell through eBay, self distribution.
