  • from 16:9 to 4:3: why I see extended images?

    Hi, I have just finished my project in 16:9 format (with Edius 4). I have just recorded a VHS (4:3) tape and when I view it with a 4:3 format TV I see extended images (in height). Even it is impossible to recognize the people.
    In that TV I think I have to see a 16:9 format with two black strips.
    Where is my error?
    Thanks

    If you did not change the project settings to 4:3, you recorded an anamorphic 16:9 image (horizontally squeezed).

    You either need to tell your TV that the input is widescreen, or you need to letterbox the output to 4:3 before you record it to your VCR.

      I think you need to adjust your TV to normal

        Yeah...or just change the project setting in EDIUS to 4:3 and record again. This time your VHS will have black bars on the top and bottom, but the aspect ratio will be correct.

          This work is too hard. ;)
          If I have to deliver 20 tape .... I have always to ask to everybody if he has a old or a new TV. If he has an old TV I have to give him a VHS 4:3 tape but if he has a new TV I have to give him a tape recorded in 16:9.
          It is very hard work!!
          Thanks

            I find this

            people with widescren TV, Plasma or LCD are DVD users

            people with old 4:3 TV sets are VHS and DVD users

            just give them a DVD, then you don;t need to worry about anything

            you won't find a household in Australia that has no DVD player, maybe different in your country?

              Yes you are right perfectly!
