If you want to rescale, put in "None" for the cropping, choose Keep Aspect Ratio and choose a smaller width with Anamorphic Loose or None.
Sorry I think that I'm a bit confused here.
When I watch the original full DVD image with either Windows Media Player or VLC Media Player I think that the picture is cut horizontally plus the player adds black bars, I'm using a 16:10 aspect ratio wide screen.
We know that the DVD standard picture size is 720x576 and the aspect ratio is 4:3, so has this anything to do with with the black bars thing?
The full DVD size is 5.7GB and I would like to create a smaller video file like around 1GB size without cropping the picture "if" possible.
Could you please suggest me the settings within the normal profile so that I can use this as a standard profile for future conversions?
