You ask very good questions. I too have been struggling with what size photo
should I input to dvd-slideshow. I'm NTSC and went with 576x480 after doing
some research, and my images are getting chopped off at the top and bottom.
Does dvd-slideshow take into consideration the TV's overscan area? I played
around with a grid and it seems I lose 40 pixels on the left and right. I
hope others chime in on this topic.
What are safe sizes to input to DVD-Slideshow?
A) What's sq_to_dvd_pixels=93,75%?
I believe, that is the adjustment for computer square pixels to TV non-square
pixels and maintaining the aspect ratio.
B) My source images are ALL 720x576 but why dss thinks it's 675x576?
I'm guessing, see A)
Side note: since you are using PAL, if you are looking for a GUI try manDVD.
C) Why autocrop_w=0/h=1 ? (why not autocrop_w=1 because image_w=675?)
I've tried recompiling from SVN (0.8.1) but no changes.
With autocrop=0 images have 2 left&right whitebars (background is white)
DVD-Slideshow determined, image too wide, crop height. Have to remember the
difference in aspect ratio.
PS: Just wanted to say nice job on dvd-slideshow. It is very much
