serafin posted a topic in VideoPadHello, as far as I can see, there ist still no possibility to export 16:9 videos as anamorphic mpegs, which would be vital for DVD authoring of widescreen videos. Anamorphic export should be possible following this article: http://www.nch.com.au/kb/10231.html. Maybe the anamorphic formats are available when exporting directly to DVD but since Videopad has no serious authoring capabilities, this isn't really a way to go. DVD specifications allow the following formats: - 720x576 square pixels for "normal" 4:3 videos - 720x576 anamorphic for 16:9 videos In the second case the video is compressed horizontaly and is stretched by the playing device later. With videopad mpeg export the only way to get 16:9 videos exported is via "letterboxing", means: exporting at 720px width with black bars on top of and below the 16:9 video. That isn't a decent way to do it Or did you ever watch a commecial DVD with a 16:9 movie with black bars on top and bottom? So I think it's about time that anamorphic output is added to Videpad export features.

Hi gang, VideoPad is awesome, but I'm having difficulty capturing webcam video in widescreen. When I go record video, I always get a preview image in 4:3 format with black bars at the sides. Clicking "Force Widescreen" stretches the image, distorting the aspect ratio. Debut can capture widescreen video from my webcam, but it's an extra hassle switching to Debut just to capture video when VideoPad has a button for it right there. It seems a bit lame that VideoPad is limited to 4:3 capture from an HD webcam. I doubt anyone really wants to work in 4:3 any more. How do I get VideoPad to capture webcam video in widescreen? Thanks, Graham
andrewhodges posted a topic in VideoPadI have a video in .MOD format which is filmed in widescreen but when I edit it in VideoPad the software alters the screen size to standard. How do I return the video to widescreen?
