    Displaying multimedia in widescreen

      Hi:
      How do aspect ratios of the output screen affect the look of my multimedia project? I always create my screens in 800x600. I haven't run into any issues when my customer plays the .exe on his computer and it outputs to a video projector (actual projector not Director...) I guess 800x600 is pretty close to 720x480 so we never get any distortion.

      My customer is asking me to develop the new project in 16:9 aspect ratio. I guess they are plugging in the computer to an LCD monitor or a video projector that outputs in 16:9. What would be the correct pixel size for my Director stage so that it looks 16:9 on the LCD, Plasma, or video Projector, but looks complete on the computer screen that is running it. I am afraid it will get cut off on the computer screen. Any ideas?

      Thanks!
      Rafael.
