Important - Adding THX intro vobs! Aspect Ratio help

    Hi - I want to add a THX 5.1 intro clip to a DVD I'm going to author (movie only - no menus - film is 16:9)

    THX vob is fine (48kHz audio etc) but in 4:3

    Problem is when I use Ifoedit to add the vob, the aspect ratio of the vob takes over the project and makes my movie 4:3

    Question - can I use a setting in Ifoedit or Vobedit to make the aspect ratio 16:9 for the whole movie including the THX intro vob?

    OR do I have to convert the THX intro vob to 16:9 before I can add it to my movie??

    Any help would be really appreciated.

    Yeah - tried it, and unless I'm doing it wrong, the problem is dvd Shrink Re-Author won't find the VOB file unless it is part of a BUP,IFO,VOB set. It won't let me add a single VOB to the start of my main movie.

    I need IFOedit whizz kids to put me straight.

    They hold the knowledge!

    If you use IfoEdit to "Create IFOs", you should then be able to open the VOB with Shrink. ;)

    Cheers DDlooping - I got it sorted eventually.

    Problem with Create IFOs was that it said my vob was invalid (or it couldn't find vob unit - whatever that means).

    Got it sorted by using VOBedit to demux into m2v + ac3 - then used IFOedit to "Author new DVD" using my demuxed files.

    When it muxed them it seemed to sort the problem and I could then use DVD Shrink.

    But this wasn't before I banged my head off the desk for the best part of the day!!

    Cheers to all who helped.
