    I am looking for information.

    When I convert movies from say AVI to Dvd, with Ultra DVD Creator, the movies are always only using the center part of the screen.

    My question is, is there any way to convert these movies so they are using the entire tv screen? and not in the format where there is just a small viewing area in the center of the screen.

    I hope this makes sense.

    Thanks in advance. shu.

    I use ConvertXtoDVD 3 and never have any problems. It's one of the best, plus it normally updates OK if you've used a keygen so you don't have to keep downloading a new cracked version each time!

    Give it a go

    It seems you are facing the problem of setting correct aspect ratio. The resulting vob/mpeg2 file is getting letterboxed into wrong aspect ratio. Post more details like source res. & your settings for conversion for more help.

    DVD Specifications Setting: NTSC ( USA, ASIA), DVD Resolution Full D1 (720 * 480 NTSC or 720*576 (PAL) Aspect Ratio 4.3 Full Screen

    Video Resize Method Automatic:Medium Crop/pad values are applied to keep source AR
    I think these are what you are asking.

    Okay still you haven't given the details for source file res. but nonetheless you want to make an NTSC dvd then res has to be set at 720 * 480 (no 720*576 pal).

    ConvertXtoDVD provides control to change most settings easily. In your project tree view go to titleset -> Video -> video resize method. When you expand it further, it shows the resize method used which can be changed by clicking on it, further you can preview it before conversion by clicking on the small box next to it. It will open another window which can allow you to change the screen area.

    I am not sure how to find that info or even where I would look.

    But, the good news, after changing the settings as you advised, it fills most of the tv screen now.

    Thank You for being so patient and helpful.

    Well you can get most of the info about your video file by using either MediaInfo or gspot tools wich are free & small in size.

    Yep so it tells that video is DivX (908 kbps) & res is 720x404 but 16:9 ratio & further it's an NTSC video because of the frame-rate of 29.97. In order to convert it 4:3 ratio (fullscreen) you will have to select 4:3 ratio in the aspect ratio & you can further tweak it by using user-defined setting in resize method. Also select symmetric pad/crop box. But changing an aspect ratio from 16:9 to 4:3 & vice-versa gives wierd picture (streched or fat). Take your pick and proceed.
