Welcome back FunkyDude, and I am glad to help you with your current
I seem to keep finding more things that can be done with Tmpeg than I
thought it can do, and I believe I have found what you are looking
I found a guide that mostly deals with how to convert video with tmpeg
( http://www.dvdrhelp.com/tmpgenc.htm ) and found an interesting part
about aspect ratio that you seem to be dealing with. Nearly half the
way down the page and into their conversion instructions, they state
that in the Tmpeg project wizard, on step 3 of 5, click "other
settings" and it will allow you to make adjustments for aspect ratio.
Specifically, it states that
"Change the Video arrange Method to Full screen (keep aspect ratio) if
you wan't the movie to look exact the same as the video source.
If you have a widescreen movie and you want it to be fullscreen(no
borders) select instead No margin(keep aspect ratio) and TMPGenc will
I hope that this will do what you need, and it sounds as though it
will. If however, there is any problem whatsoever, please let me know,
and I will be happy to get you additional instructions or more
I did a search of vcdhelp.com on google for "aspect ratio conversion"
