You’re always sharing very helpful info, so I figured I’d contribute something I learned today.


I’m putting together a DVD in DVD Studio Pro and had one image (a PNG) set for use for one menu and another (a TIFF) for another menu.


When I placed the PNG as my background (with the 720 x 534 x 72 dpi dimensions) it autosized for my 16:9 menu. When I placed the TIFF in, with the same dimensions, it did not fill the entire length and width of the menu — it left the picture centered without fully covering and exceeding the “action safe area.”


I changed the TIFF in question to a PNG and voila, the picture was autosized by DVD Studio Pro to fit.


Hopefully this will help someone dealing with a similar issue.

Larry replies: Thanks, Ryan. Nice tip.
