If you've burned the DVD files with Premiere Elements, you don't need to do anything in Nero, other than copy the files to a playable disk. The files are already created and, if you set them up as such in Premiere Elements, are already widescreen.
If I open the saved files in the folder, they will play in Windows Media Player as wide screen but when I burned the files to a dvd, it plays on my television (not a widescreen TV) and fills the entire screen (no black above and below) and can't see the right and left sides. I chosse 16:9 in the set-up before beginningh project. Do I need to something more?
Note: I did export to AVI then added the AVI to a new project and burned that project to dvd. the files open in widescreen in Windows Media Player.
You may have to manually set your TV to play the DVD in widescreen.
Sometimes home-burned DVDs don't trigger the automatic widescreen feature.
Thanks Steve - I just tried playing the DVD in my PC and it plays widescreen. Should have thought to try that before. Now I will have to figure out the television to see if that option is available. Does this happen often?
Thanks for all your help.
With home-burned DVDs, yes, it does.
Except, as I said. It's not your TV. It's the DVD player that needs to be set for widescreen.
Sorry, I thought you meant I have to set the TV to widescreen. I will take a look at the DVD player to see if there is a manual setting for widesceen.
