hi,

does anyone know the standard pixel x pixel size to export animation to if i want to eventually burn it to dvd, then play it on a widescreen tv?

thanks,
steven.

Yup! LightWave does :D check out D1 (PAL Widescreen) under Camera Properties/Resolution - 720 x 576 pixel aspect 1.4222

The resolution is the same as 4:3 it's just the pixel aspect that's different.

thanks for the quick reply.

so am i right in saying that if i rendered out at that aspect ratio, then played it on a widescreen tv, it will automatically stretch to fit the 16:9 screen?

Use the preset setting for D1 widescreen as-is (resolution as well as aspect ratio) unless you are going to use a 3rd party aplicatio to re-size your video !
