Re: Anamorphic Questions

You are also incorrect; it is possible to create an MP4 file (not sure about AVI), for example, that STORES the data using non-square pixels (not simply displays it). A pixel by itself doesn't have any shape, actually. It's just a dot with a color. What makes a pixel non-square is the pixel aspect ...

Re: Anamorphic Questions

However, 720x480 to 640x480 is a special case, since it is only necessary to change the PAR - each pixel will be smaller, but will keep its original value. Therefore, the conversion is lossless. My original question was whether HandBrake realizes this is a special case or treats it just like the ot...

Re: Anamorphic Questions

Changing the storage resolution = resizing. it's exactly the same. If you don't resize, then the storage resolution remains the same. Well, maybe you can call it "resizing"... but the question is whether it is lossless. I believe that it is (theoretically, once again). It isn't. Storage r...

Re: Anamorphic Questions

You still have a storage dimension of 720 x 480 No, you have a storage resolution of 640x480 in the second case. Changing pixels to 1:1 affects storage resolution, not display resolution. No. Display resolution doesn't exist per se. It depends on storage resolution and pixel aspect ratio. Changing ...

RoverTX, please create a new topic for your issue. My problem is that if I don't have it set to 100% (0RF) it ends up looking very blocky every other time something movies.

Re: Anamorphic Questions

640 x 480 with square pixels (PAR of 1/1) will indeed result in the same aspect ratio of 4:3 as 720 x 480 with a PAR of 8/9. But your are losing quality by changing the storage dimensions (whether you call that resizing or not). I don't understand why I am losing quality. This sort of change is (th...

Re: Anamorphic Questions

720x480 is 4:3 after adjusting for non-square pixels. Only if the pixel aspect ratio is 8/9 (720 x 8/9 = 640, resulting in display dimensions of 640 x 480). But on some DVDs, the storage dimension is also 720 x 480 but the PAR is 32/27, resulting in a final aspect ratio of 16:9 (display dimensions ...

Re: Anamorphic Questions

My question is in relation to DVD Video, which I believe only comes in a 4:3 variant. Not quite sure what you mean here. Commercial DVDs don't all come in "4:3 variant". Actually, many/most recent DVDs have a 16:9 aspect ratio. Also, once you remove letterboxing and/or pillarboxing (the b...

Interesting - although not necessarily surprising. Apple tends to be very conservative about what you can sync to your iPod.

This could very well be an iTunes/QuickTime bug (wouldn't surprise me if it were Windows-only, too).

I see you figured it out all by yourself. Indeed, both the AppleTV and iPod will refuse to play (or sync) videos if the frame rate exceeds 30 fps.

Re: Question about Ipod Nano video format

It may not be the Nano's specs. It most definitely is. There's no way any version of iTunes will let you transfer high profile H.264 (which is what the Animation preset produces) to any iPod nano. Even if it transferred, the Nano probably wouldn't be able to play it back. in my case, I was able to ...
