    1280x720 Comp to Widescreen DVD – Best Practices.

    hhhhhhhhhhhhhh5 Level 1

      I have an AE project with footage shot at 1280x720, square pixels. One of the project outputs is a 1280x720 YouTube video, so no problem rendering that.

      Another output a widescreen DVD. I'm using Encore CS6 to create the DVD, and of course the video ends up with two vertical black bars on the sides. I'm currently rendering the AE comp into MPEG2-DVD using AME with the “NTSC 23.976p Wide” preset to avoid transcoding. What would be the latest best practice for turning my project into DVD without the vertical or horizontal bars?
