Dear dRD, I seem to have gotten pretty good at this vcd making thing. I only have 1 problem to solve before i can make a perfect vcd. First off,my tools that i use are: TMPGEnc VirtualDub Nero The format and templates i am using are: Video CD (PAL) 4:3 625line (PAL) Full Screen (Keep aspect ratio) My problem is that when i test the vcd on my dvd player, a little bit of the left and right hand sides of the screen is unviewable. It wouldnt be too noticeable but i am converting Anime with subtitles. If the subtitles are long, then a word or two on the left and right side of the screen is cut off.I tried using "Center Keep aspect ratio) but thats even worse.Is there a way that the entire subtitle can be seen? Any help or hints would be great. Thanks in advance.
