DVD Workshop 2 Help

Post by mcscalise »

Anyone using DVD Workshop 2? Here is a question...I am creating a 16x9 DVD using the viewing window in 16x9 mode...but when I go to the menu creation page the viewing window shifts to 4x3...and there does not appear to be a way to keep it in 16x9. The button that changes aspect ratio goes gray...becoming in-active. Seems rather strange since I want to create a DVD that is 16x9 in all respects.
Is this a flaw in the software...or a limitation due to the aspect of the menu backgrounds? FYI...the background image I am using is a frame from my video...so it is 16x9.
I have looked at all the settings and have found nothing to help me out.

When I play the burned DVD it plays the menu in 4x3 and the video in 16x9...no surprise there...but it would be great if it were all in 16x9.

And...I don't beleive this software is supported any more or else I could call someone....

Anyone have any ideas???

DVDWS2 can not produce 16:9 menus... however there is a method to accomplish this.. Have a look at this thread --> http://forum.corel.com/EN/viewtopic.php?t=12880
