I've purchased some books on making DVD's and video editing, but none seem to address the things I want to know. I've been asked to make a DVD slideshow of a local event. I'm using adobe Premier Pro and Encore CS3 and believe I can use them well enough to complete the DVD. After viewing the first test, I found the images were soft with poor detail in the shadows and highlights. I've read that the NTSC format uses a compressed color scheme and a pixel aspect ratio of 0.9 on a normal sized screen. Can anyone tell me how to prepare an image for display in a widecreen DVD slideshow production. What dimension, PAR, colorspace etc to use. I use photoshop CS3. Thank You, Stanley.
