Aspect Ratio and Resolution

You can create 4:3 and 16:9 slideshows. In HD projects, you can also choose a resolution
for the slideshow.

Note: In HD projects, the 720 x 480p, 720 x 576p, 1280 x 720p, and 1920 x 1080i resolutions
do not support the 4:3 aspect ratio.

When creating 16:9 slideshows, you are able to choose the display mode (pan and scan,
letterbox, or pan and scan and letterbox) used when viewed on a 4:3 monitor.

For the best results, you should make sure your slides match the resolution of your
slideshow. Slides that are smaller or larger than the slideshow’s resolution are automatically
scaled to fit it. Slides whose aspect ratio does not match the slideshow’s aspect ratio have
a background color added to fill in the gaps. The background color is part of
DVD Studio Pro Preferences. See
