I have problem converting an AVI file to SVCD...

When I run the SVCD on my standalone DVD player, the image is stretched horizontaly (people appears to be fat).... The image is fullscreen horizontally but not vertically (image has a rectangle shape).

My AVI file is an anime episode so it must be possible to get it perfectly in fullscreen.

In TMPGEnc, I simply use the "Project Wizard" to make a MPG with NTSC 480x480 format and I get the result described above.

The Project Wizard put automatically the following settings:
- Source aspect ratio: "1:1 (VGA) " --> Should I set it to "4:3 525 line (NTSC" or another?
- Video Arrange method: "Full screen" --> Should I set it to "Full screen (keep aspect ratio" or "Full screen (keep aspect ratio 2)" ?

I checked the thread "Idiot's Guide for Converting Avi to KVCD". I wonder why I would need VirtualDub(???). TMPGEnc and then Nero Express do the job (except for my problem )

What's the difference between SVCD and KVCD???

I'm sure the solution is just a little change in the settings: But I searched a lot in this web site and it didn't help me: I'm now more confused... And I don't what to waste more time (and CD-R when I make tests) to search when surely many of you know's what I do wrong...

Thank you for your help.

I understand taht you are not using any script. So let the source to 1:1and put the target to "Full screen, keep A/R".

Different matrix used for encoding + some settings changed in GOP composition and length. All this lead to have a perfect quality for a movie on a CD80 were you need 2 CD for the same in SVCD.

I can't understand....

I tried the following settings:

1) As you told me:
source aspect ratio= 1:1 VGA
video arrange method: Full screen (keep aspect ratio)

2)
source aspect ratio= 4:3 Display
video arrange method= Full screen (keep aspect ratio)
Clip frame= on

Not only it didn't fix the "full screen" problem, but I got EXACTLY the SAME result with both 1) and 2)... As if it was the same file... As if I put the same setting for the 2 files...



Is it possible to "Nero Express" to be the problem?

snorkyller,
You have not said what your source video aspect ratio is or what kind of TV you are viewing on. If your source video has 4:3 aspect ratio (such as 720x480 DV camera output) and your TV has 4:3 aspect ratio, then use TNPGEnc set with Video arrange method = Full screen on Advanced tab and also make sure Aspect ratio on Video tab = 4:3 Display. Then what ever frame size you use (480x480 for example) the video will be displayed full screen.
