    Well, I seem to have overcome this wierdness, for some reason there must be a difference somewhere within the encoding as my "trusty" Panasonic DVD player has various set ups and auto settings for the way it displays images.

    It has always played everything I've made - mostly Procoder2/3 and Encore 1.5 / 2.0 and previuosly with DVD Workshop - with the settings on the player in auto.

    I now find I have to set aspects and "zoom" settings manually to achieve correct playback - playback of DVD Creators files and discs on any computer show correctly.

    So a bit of a false alarm in a way - maybe I've got a set top player that's sensitive to some flag or other.

    Thanks for everyones attention to this - back to the pool!

    Hey Paul, I have done a fair bit of this, mainly with HDV down to 16*9 SD DVDs and its worked fine for me, (apart from the first time when the disk juddered on playback - turned out the default bitrates were too high for the playback devices..)

    Im happy to try something specific, but I am only using OHCI.. not my old trusty Storm!

    16:9 is 16:9 here. I works.

    Is your project or are your sequences all using 16:9?

    Yeah, its all totally correct here, the project, the Creator settings - I'm just testing an mpeg so not able to interrupt to look at the chapter problem yet.

    I'm burning 2 titles on 1 DVD the first title is a mpeg-clip (a DVD intro clip), the second title is a DV sequence (the actual project).

    Did you check the project settings? Are they 16:9?

    Bart, are you burning from a sequence or from an mpeg file?

    Just tested this for you: 16:9 PAL DV project => burned DVD with DVD Creator => shows correctly here ...

    Could you test the markers vs chapters time code please? (this went also wrong in this project)

    => other features of this DVD Creator work ok

    Just run a test on my Storm System, 16x9 project PAL, thru' DVD Creator with 16x9 menu (shows correctly) end result on disc, 4x3!

    Will test a 16x9 file - anyone else up for trying this?

    no, source project 16x9 as noted in creators sequence information - I'm just running another test on my Storm setup and I'll test a 16x9 file rather than a sequence from within Edius.

    The only problem with this is that the Creator soft appears to hate rewritable discs which I'musing for these tests, it takes about 25 mins to burn 50mb test file.

    Just tested 2 projects, both 4:3 PAL DV => worked as it should expect for a random difference between marker timecode and chapter timecode.
    Not tested 16:9 yet.

    The source project you exported from was 16:9 right? You weren't trying to run the app "standalone" outside of EDIUS were you?

    started a topic DVD Creator Aspect Ratio

    DVD Creator Aspect Ratio

    I just tested out the Canopus DVD Creator attached to 4.51c and maybe it's me, but it appears to burn 4:3 aspect ratio discs only.

    My sequence contains a DV 16:9 file, project is DV 16x9 lower field first - and I've set the menu in Creator to 16x9.

    So, all encodes OK, then when I play the disc on my trusty old DVD player, the menu is 16x9 but the clip is 4x3

    Anyone else found this or have I missed an obvious set up check box.

    thanks, I'll lounge in the pool and have a cold beer whilst I think this over.
