I've got a Sony camcorder with a "Widescreen" recording option. I use Sony Vegas 6 and DVD Architect Studio 3, and want to watch DVDs on a Sony widescreen TV. Easy, right?
No matter what I try, my DVDs show cropped on the sides.
Originally I used a Vegas project setting of "NTSC Widescreen 720x480". When I click "Make Movie" there's also a checkbox on one of the screens for "Use DVD Widescreen" (or something like that) which I usually check, then in DVD Arch I also use a project setting of "NTSC Widescreen 720x480".
Cropped. Various combinations of "NTSC 720x480" vs "NTSC Widescreen 720x480", while checking and unchecking the "Use DVD Widescreen" option, still cropped.
I'm overwhelmed. Too many settings I dont' know anything about, too many possible combinations... can anybody please let me what settings I should use to get a vid that doesn't crop?
