I am looking for a way to do Constant Image Height with software or a mediaplayer. Source for my movies is a computer. I want to play anything from a seventies 3:4 Italian TV rip to a modern HD file in 2:35, in the same image height. Projector is a Benq W1070 with 1920x1080. I am seated at 16 feet from a 8 feet wide screen. I don't mind losing some resolution. Been happy for years with low res 800 x 600 projector. But would love cinemascope as it should be. (scope highest resolution widest screen, widescreen less resolution smaller screen in analogy of 35mm technolgy) I dont mind black bars on the side of the WS picture.
It would be wonderfull if there would be software that let me do this.
Cinemascope 2:35 = 1920 x 817 pixels
Widescreen 1:85 = 1511 x 817 pixels
Academy 1:37 = 1119 x 817 pixels
Anybody know of software that would do this? Set 817 pixels height and forget? Again i do know i am losing some resulotion, i am not that fixated on resolution. DCI just zooms out Scope in theaters, never had any problems with that or felt a great loss over the pixels getting bigger when going from wide to scope when visiting a theater.
I just want the picture to fit on the screen, no hassle with lenses or zoom.
