Zoom letterboxed DVDs without any extra software
Authored by: tetsuotheironman on Dec 06, '04 06:19:35PM

but you lose part of the frame? WTF is the point? Might as well watch Pan and Scan while you are at it. No offense.. but seeing some movies without the seeing the full frame as intended by director seiously detracts from viewing experience imho... I'll stick to black bars, as they don't bother me all that much..

no no no, this is not pan-and-scan.

you don't lose any of the frame. mess around with the zoom max and zoom min settings in the "zoom options" dialog and with just a little effort you'll be set up for the full movie frame edge-to-edge on your screen, with just a little letterboxing on top and bottom, every time you need it. movies in the 1.85:1 ratio will almost completely fill the screen, just like they do for anamorphic transfers.

it just takes a little tweaking... it works really well.
