View Full Version : Some Local Content is Resized?

I don't know why, but some of my local content (example Avatar) is being reformatted from 1.78:1 to fit my 16:9 screen exactly. Other content with native 2:35:1 like How to Train Your Dragon display correctly.

hi toph -

16/9 == 1.78

so if the original aspect ratio on the content was 1.78 then it should fill the screen. did you expect something different?

if avatar is dvd content then what happens is the source material is 720x480 but the presentation for the material should be 852x480. so we apply the scaling to ensure you get the intended presentation ratio, then we scale the resulting image to fit your screen without breaking the presentation ratio or cropping.

let me know if this is out of line with what you expect for this, would love to discuss
