Thread: Slightly Squashed people.

  1. #1

    Default Slightly Squashed people.

    I have taken a VOB file straight rom DVD to Vegas. 16:9 widescreen.
    Vegas proporties the same.
    Clip rendeded to same spec as input file with the addition of 4 seperate audio language tracks.
    Clip imported to DVD architect.
    Session settings in architect match clip.
    Burn DVD.
    My people have shrunk slightly and picture is slightly more square. Why?
    Thanking you all in advance!

    Put bluntly this is utter rubbish. DVD is PRINCIPALLY used to deliver widescreen. 16:9 in the NORM. Whether Blu-Ray or DVD, it has NOTHING to do with aspect ratio... In DVD Architect there are project properties for wide and 4.3.

    As long as they are selected correctly and the MPEG2 was rendered as 16:9 project in whatever NLE is used there shouldn't be a problem....

    Compo - phew, sorry - now I've got over that last post, can you confirm what your project properties are in Vegas?

    Hi Andy

    Vegas Proporties are the "PAL DV Widescreen (720x576, 25fps)" Template. 1.4568 (PAL DV Widescree) Pixel aspect Ratio.
    I render the clip as MPEG 2 using the "DVD Architect PAL Widescreen Video Stream" Template.

    DVD architect proporties are set to: PAL Widescreen (720x576).

    Original VOB file proporties are MPEG-2 720x576x32, Pixel aspect: 1.4568 (PAL DV Widescreen).

    Now I do adjust the framing a bit to remove some nast teeth befor rendering BUT it was still happening on the ones with the teeth (along the top).
    + there is also a marked drop in quality with the slightly cropped ones, but that was my next tread!

    Cheers

    And can you just describe your workflow here? What method are you using to adjust? the 'teeth' you are getting - are they jaggies all across the screen during movement? (interlacing)

    Teeth are just the little black and white stripes you sometimes get along the top edge (usually) of the pictuure. Something I'm seeing more and nmore of on commercial TV theese days!
    I simply crop the top edge of the frame ever so slightly.
    HOWEVER: my squashed people arrive weather i crop or not!

    Default Hijacked

    Mr Vidmanners

    Why have you hijacked this thread?

    It has nothing to do with Blue ray or HD footage.
    If you read the first post it is about taking a VOB file from a DVD adding a language and burning to another DVD giving some "Squached people" results!

    Go and post your edits and findings about your own problems on your own thread please!
    They have no bearing on the solutions required for me!

    Thank you
