Convert 16:9 to standard definition letterbox; Solved

Postby Lord Volvo » 22 May 2013, 17:06

I'm running QMC 4.5.0.6 on Windows XP SP2.

I'm trying to convert a 16:9 mpeg to a letterboxed 720x480 mpeg2 for playback on a video server. In expert mode under the editing tab, I turned on the pad and entered 63 in U and B. I left R and L blank. Under video options, the Codec is mpeg2, Bitrate is 8000K, aspect is 4:3, Frame is 29.97, and W and H are 720 and 480.

When I try a conversion, I get the error message OPTION PADTOP HAS BEEN REMOVED, USE THE PADFILTER INSTEAD. FAILED TO SET VALUE TO 63 FOR OPTION PADTOP."

I have successfully converted videos before with QMC but my C drive crashed and I'm reinstalling all of my software. I may not have set a parameter correctly.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hello Lord Volvo,
-padleft etc. options are deprecated
Use -vf pad=width:height:x:y:color instruction in the command line.
