can somebody answer a quick question for me because I forgot and I can't seem to find the answer by searching. I know that NTSC dvd is 720x480 resolution but how many lines of resolution are actually used on a 2.35:1 dvd (you know, minus the black bars)?

I'll say 360 if anamorphic and 270 if not.


I guess it should really be 480 * 4/3 / 2.35 ~= 272 if Matte

and 480 * 16/9 / 2.35 ~= 363 if anamorphic.

Thanks for the response guys. I was curious because I'm trying to encode some dvds to wmv and get my little brother to play them rather than scratching up and generally ruining my dvd collection.
