I have been struggling to get a KVCD or KDVD created from an MPEG-2 source at 544x480 NTSC, 29.97 fps.

If I use a template straight up, if distorts the picture to 704x480 or 352 etc.

If I modify it to preserve the aspect ratio it keeps it at 544 but tmpg author rejects the file because it can't handle the resolution -- and it can't have 29.97 fps at that resolution.

Could someone please suggest how to get around this hurdle. I am new to all this so I don't really understand all the ins and outs of the tmpg tool.

ALSO: If I select a template like the Full Duplex KDVD, and make no changes, the output file is nearly the same size as my source file - approx. 1.4 GB per hour. At that rate I'll get barely 3 hours on a DVD instead of 6. Am I missing something here?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi gosens,

You must use "MovieStacker" or "FitCD" to get your correct aspect.
For accurate file size, you must use file prediction.
Check the "CQMatic" forum, and the "File Prediction" forum.
