    Hi
    I've recently been capturing some old 8mm home movies using a D8 camcorder in order to transfer to DVD. The problem is that there is a thin line of distortion at the bottom of the captures. When playing back on tv with overscan they are hidden but all too visible when playing back on an LCD projector. Is there an easy way to remove or hide this distortion?

    Thanks for any suggestions

    On many editing programmes you can crop the picture slightly to remove this distortion - what editing programme do you use ??

    I'm using Studio 8.12 and TMPGEnc DVD Author. I've got a copy of Premiere around here somewhere though. Will cropping & thereby reducing the resolution be a problem? I seem to remember reading something about some authoring programs being fussy about accepting non-std Mpeg source resolutions.
