Batch Manager Troubles once Aspect Ratio of a Recording has to be changed ( DVDOutp.)

If i add a Recording to the batch queue with lets say

1. Movie which has wrong Aspect Info and has to be switched to 4:3 Aspect Ratio to be correct.

2. Another Movie having correct 16:9 Apect ratio output should be DVD or Mpg

will always display inside the Batch Manager that the Movie which has a change on Aspect needs "major recode" if the switched Movie uses a DVD Output Profile.




If you save it to DVD not using the Batch Manager it
saves it without Major Recode as wanted ( Fast Framecopy ) and also changes its Aspect flawless.

You can reproduce this if you simply use the same Source and switch from 4:3 to 16:9 or from 16:9 to 4:3 using the DVD Profile Output.

What DVD output profile are you using? Or do you mean that you're clicking Create DVD and then queuing it to batch from there?

Yes , i click Create DVD and then queuing it to batch from there.

I simply use No Change settings in any Menue and then switch the Aspect Ratio to 4:3.
My Settings are the Fast Framecopy Settings as in this Screenshot.

After i switched the Aspect i then simply click on "Queue to batch".
Its no Special DVD Template.
Just so that everything stays untouched.

I also noticed that once you default setup the DVD Output to Double Layer and switch the Aspect it changes for no reason to Single Layer.
But even if you switch this back to DVD9 then befor clicking "Queue to batch " it wont affect on that the Batch wants a full recode then.

The DVD size thing only effect things if the video is too large for the selected size. So for example if you have a 2 hour video that is 6GB and you have the DVD size set to single layer then it will be recoded to fit on the 4.7GB disc, but if you change it to DL then it may not need to be recoded. The dialog also tries to be smart in the opposite direction, so if you go into the options and change something it will change the DVD size to match the smallest DVD needed to hold the video using the settings you just changed. In your case it doesn't matter because the video is small enough to fit on a SL DVD without recoding.

As for the other issue... Are you sure the video is actually being recoded. It could just be a flaw in the UI that is saying that it has to be recoded when it doesn't actually need to be recoded. I'll try to test it out on Monday and see if I can reproduce it, but I'm guessing that it's a cosmetic issue and the DVD will be processed just fine without recoding. (you'll be able to tell if it's actually recoding because it will be really slow and take a lot of CPU cycles)
