KVCD: Encoding at 4:3 or 16:9?

What should i encode source aspect ratio as, 4:3 or 16:9. On the back of dvd it says 16:9 anamorphic (original aspect ratio 2.35:1).

I am not good knowing all this aspect stuff :(

If your encoding target is a K(VCD), you should encode 4:3. No matter if the movie is 4:3 or 16:9. VCDs are encoded 4:3. If you encode 16:9, you might run into aspect problems with some TVs.
Your source aspect should be set to "Center" if you are using SansGrip's "GripCrop" filters. If you are using an .avs script generated by FitCD, your input aspect should be set to "Full screen".

Hi kwag

Thanks for reply but i still got aspect problems :cry:

It seems that when i use gripfit with overscan the lower the value the more it chops of the sides of movie :?

Its like if i use overscan=1 which is 8 pixel it chops 8 pixel from side of movie and overscan=2 it chops 16 pixel from side of movie :cry:

I would like black borders down side of movie but i can't seem to get them anymore even if i use fitcd script i don't know wtf has happened??

I tried overscan=3 and thats just about shows sides but its still pretty chopeed :-(

This is the script i am using:


Mpeg2Source("D:\divx or dvd encoding\51st_State\VIDEO_TS\51st state.d2v")
GripCrop( width=544, height=576, overscan=2 )

## MPEG size = ((Total frames/MovieTimeInMinutes)/24) * MPEG sample file size ##

Hope you or someone can help this is driving me potty :roll:

Hi Adder,

Your script is correct. Maybe it's a PAL problem with the filters :idea:
Have you contacted SansGrip about this :?:

:lol: Those black borders on the side are ok... You won't see them on your TV, but if you have less pixel to encode, the quality will be better... TV Overscan also chops off pixels on the top and on the bottom of the video... :wink:

Thanks kwag and jellygoose for reply :)

Its really strange cause if i use a fitcd script it doesn't show me black borders on side of tv any more its flush but when i used to use fitcd scripts i got the black borders.

I don't know what has happened :(
