I'm doing a batch encode in Tmegenc using KVCD x3. During encoding the picture has BIG black borders. I went to play back using WinDVD and the borders are present there as well. Is this going to show up on the TV, and if so, how did this happen? I'm running the files without any Avisynth scripts....

Any ideas?

What value did you use for "Blocks-TV overscan"

I didn't deviate from standard X3 (no filters or adjusted settings)

edit the KVCDx3mpeg(x)NTSCFilm.mcf (notepad, you know)
and see if this lines are the same like mine .mcf :

MPEG.Video.Width = 528
MPEG.Video.Width_ReadOnly = False
MPEG.Video.Height = 480
MPEG.Video.Height_ReadOnly = False

you're in California, is NTSC of course.

I haven't had a chance to watch this on a TV yet. Could I be getting worked up over nothing?

OK, burning it right now. Major variations in quality among these files... they're all different SNL caps from tv, so I think the borders were more prevalent in lower res sources...

guess I'll find out soon enough. 38% to go

hi guys..

@ Reno

* Do you recall what you AR was set to ??

This will throw off your boarders some.

* Also, did you forget to reset your OUTPUT AR from 16:9 back to
... 4:3 under Video Tab ??

I did some captures of SNL this weekend.. Beyonce Knowles performed a
few good tunes (and moves, and her backup dancers too )

@ SNL:
Hay, did you see where she F**Ked up on the lip-sink hehe..
..but the crowd, they fell asleep or wer too aw'ed on the dancers to care
any.
