title picture aspect ration

Hey guys Iím having a problem with my title picture being resized without keeping its original aspect ratio.

Iíve done a search on this topic and found some suggested sizes, but all of them get stretched out and look silly.

Does anyone have a size to use for the title picture that keeps its ratio?

BTW - Iím using cce, keep interlaced, anamorphic (no borders, encoded as 16:9), BicubicResize - Temporal Smoother, (canít think of anything else that would affect the size?)

Thanks in advance.

Hi doGMan,

I think, the problem is "anamorphic (no borders, encoded as 16:9)". If you want to play the SVCDs on DVD players, you won't be able to play anamorphic SVCDs. This is true for almost all DVD players. If you only want to play the movies on the computer use DivX (that is only my opinion!).
The correct encoding would be "16:9 (borders added, encoded as 4:3)" for 16:9 movies and "4:3 (No borders, encoded as 4:3)" for 4:3 movies. I think that are also the values chosen automatically by dvd2svcd.

Are you saying the whole movie looks funny or just the tittle picture?

If you want to know what DVD2SVCD uses for sizes just open up any of the images in the DVD2SVCD directory.

Oh no Mr. Bill!

thanks for the info guys, but so far i've still got the problem.

As far as the the image looking funny, its just the title picture, the rest looks great - by the way the program is great, thanks DVD2SVCD!

markrb i also tried using the title picture that comes with DVD2SVCD (240x240 i think), but it also gets stretched wide so it is no longer square. Any ideas?

thanks for your help

Encode the mpeg still yourself with VCDEasy and then choose the *.mpg in DVD2SVCD for the titlepicture. Do the same for change cd and last cd pic.
It takes only a few seconds, and you will get a high quality SVCD MPEG Still with the right aspect ratio.

greets, winxi
thanking DVD2SVCD for helping me to make the best SVCDs around!!!
