Thread: DVD picture skewed in DVD player

  1. Default DVD picture skewed in DVD player

    I've just burned my DVD movie, and it plays OK on my computer.
    Everything looks in the right place.

    However, when I go to play it in a DVD player, the picture is off-centre (to the left).
    I am in the UK using PAL.

    Is there a way of rendering it to make 100% sure that it display properly in my DVD player?

    Also the DVD will be played by some people in the US... any comments?
    Tks,

    Is your TV a CRT?

    A lot of the time arguements used against CRT are "picture is off center" or "picture is cropped" however these problems only affect badly calibrated CRTs, sadly, most manufacturers don't allow manual access to these settings (Although most do include a secret button code to access them).

    it may be that your TV actually displays all DVDs-off center slightly, they've just had their video and menu designed in such a way that it's not notable where as when you yourself have designed it you know where everything is supposed to be therefore you notice it.
    It's not about what camera you use or how much it cost.

    It's about what you shoot,
    how you shot it,
    and how you edit it :P

    CRT calibration is most certainly the issue here however, if ytou keep your content within the defined safety areas (which your DVD authoring prog should be able to show) then you shouldn't miss anything.
