I created a video in iDVD 7.1.2. The source video was shot widescreen and edited in FCP. I exported the video 720x480 anamorphic 16:9 (NTSC). I created a new iDVD project as a widescreen project, utilizing one of the preloaded templates. The thumbnail chapters in iDVD show the clips as 16:9 but when I play the video, it plays 4:3. I reloaded iDVD, tossed the prefs, ran permissions, did everything I can think to do. I'm certain it's a bug in iDVD. The Apple forum suggested fixing the video in MyDVDEdit by creating a VideoTS folder.

My question is this: What is the difference between converting to 16:9, 16:9 Auto Pan&Scan, 16:9 auto letterbox, 16:9 auto pan&scan and letterbox? Which should I select and what are the ramifications of choosing one over the other?

My OS is 10.6.8.

Many thanks for the assistance

In your case, convert to 16:9 auto-letterbox
I want to see my DVD in 16:9!

The video I exported from FCP is clean as a whistle. No bleeding reds and no interlacing. When I do the 16:9 conversion, the video output isn't as clean as I would like. The reds bleed like crazy and there's some interlacing. FYI, I used "professional" setting in the encoding in iDVD. Your thoughts?

Sorry, I cannot help you.
myDVDEdit does not touch the video encoding, only the video information.
I don't know what convertion iDVD does.
