hey, i am trying to make an avi file of the dvd "a beautiful mind". on the cover it says the aspect is 1.85:1..
here is the command i am using:
mencoder -alang en -sws 2 dvd://1 -force-avi-aspect 1.85:1 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vhq:vbitrate=1024:vpass=1 -vf crop=720:448:0:12 -oac mp3lame -lameopts br=92:vol=10:vbr=3 -o a_beautiful_mind.avi
(2nd pass command identical except vpass=2 obviously..)
the problem i am having is that the avi file is slightly to wide for the screen... it is exactly like the dvd, except without the black borders, and when playing the dvd when i try to resize it, it keeps the movie in proportions, whereas with my avi file i cannot resize it proportionally....
my guess is that i need to either use a "scale" paramater, or subtract from the first 2 values of the crop setting proportionally... basically i am unsure of what values to use though, and what exact path i should take to fix this problem..
any help would be awesome, thanks.. --c0ldshadow
