hello all, I'm kind of a newbee in terms of digital video, and I need help to figure out the following: 01. I've filmed some footage (16:9) with a mini-DV camera, all is well. 02. I then connected the camera to the mac via firewire, and have used iMovie to capture the footage, as widescreen, all is well, no problems here. 03. after all the captures, I can review my video in iMovie, in widescreen, as intended. 04. I need to compress as divx, because I would like to view my footage in my dvd-player (which plays divx); I don't want to create a DVD, just divx files. Ok, the problem is right here! My footage are captured with 960 x 540px, which is widescreen. If I open it in quictime, it opens the files as having 768 x 576px (which is 4:3)... I have installed divx 6.7, which also includes the conversion codecs, and I've made several trials: A. converted to divx with 960 x 540px <- this doens't play on my dvd-player! and quicktime doesn't accept the width, so I used MPEG streamclip B. converted to divx with 768 x 576px <- plays on the dvd-player, but as expected is 4:3, so I don't need this one. C. converted to divx with 720 x 400px (16:9) <- plays on the dvd-player -- my questions are: 01. why doesn't quicktime recognize the original widescreen format? 02. is the 720 x 400px resolution the one that I should use? or am I losing resolution compared to the original? Any contribution is appreciated! TIA!
