WideScreen with Gordian Knot?

hi,

fot example the movie American Pie has the resolution 16:9, buit also WideScreen -> 1,85:1

How can I get this resolution in G-Knot?
In the "Bitrate" register, I just see 16:9, 4:3, 1:1 or these other two settings "other...." and "Display AR....".

Well, how can I say G-Knot to encode the movie with WideScreen 1,85:1 ?

ummmm, no

just use the 16x9 and crop the black bars as reccommended, then later read up on anamorphic widescreen. try a search on google, and I think doom9 has a little info on it as well.

after your reading you will see that there is just no reason to try to use the old widescreen over the new one.

both 1,85:1 and 2,35:1 are 16x9 settings, only one is widescreen (2,35:1) and the other isn't.

Yosemite,

Here, read up on aspect ratios (see link below). The movie you're trying to encode has an AR of 1.85, but when you expand that to full screen, black bars appear right? if I understand correctly (I'm sure I did), the movie along with the black bars will constitute an AR of 16:9 (divide 16/9=1.78 ~ 1.8). Error to the order of 2% is acceptable in my opinion as the human eyes are not sensitive to minor changes in AR.

above all else

make sure that you look at the preview in resized view. if it look sright, then it is right. if it looks stretched in any way, then try a different setting. almost all dvds being released nowadays (almost all, not all) are anamorphic. if your box has 2.35:1 and 1.85:1 then the other format is probably on the other disk, or even on the other side of the disk.

if you are lucky enough to be able to find something in the video that is a sphere (basketball, other completely round thing, must be 3dimensional) then you can use a coin, holding it up to the screen to be very anal. do this with the custom aspect ratio box in gknot and you can even fix the errors that the silly producers left in. I haven't seen a movie yet where they got the aspect ratio perfect, but it can almost always be corrected.

Hang on. As far as I know, a movie does not have an "anamorphic" option along with a "1.85" option. That would make the "1.85" option
redundant. I'll explain:

When the anamorphic frame is stretched into proper proportion, it
creates the 1.85:1 aspect ratio (or 2.35, or whatever is specified on
the disc). When it is *not* stretched, it creates the full screen
effect - at the expense of a vertically stretched image.

What the disc is specifying is:

1. The movie is anamorphic, to allow you to view it in full screen
(vertically stretched) if you desire.
2. The aspect ratio when the anamorphic frame is put back into
its original proportions.

These are not two different options to choose from. An anamorphic
film caters to both widescreen and full screen.
