I'm converting some DVDs to .mp4 and unsure what preset to use - hopefully someone can help with some basic questions. I'll be playing these back on widescreen 1080p TVs. Here are my questions:
1. When choosing a preset, do I consider the source resolution or the target (playing device) resolution when choosing either 480p or 1080p? Or is this not the right way to make this decision based on source and/or target resolution? I've tried Fast 480p 30 and Fast 1080p 30 and can't really see a difference (as I expected since the source is 480p). I don't want any 'stretching' of the video - I want it to look just like the source.
2. Will choosing a 1080p preset 'stretch' the video to wide/1080?
3. Are there any upscaling options? I'd rather do a slower capture if the picture can improve, but not sure if there is anything I can set to upscale from 480p.
Thanks in advance for any help!
