Re: HD experts, help an idiot!
So as I said in my last post, rather than crop to 16:9 why not "smartly stretch" it into 16:9?
That's worse than cropping. The only thing worse than seeing short and fat people waddling across a 16:9 frame is fat people on the edges, getting steadily thinner as they reach the centre. Sensitive cropping would be preferable, together with the additional picture information in the film which was lost when it was scanned to video with wetgate or whatever.
