I bought the AtmosFX jack O lantern Jamboree and successfully combined the different scenes in a nice loop using Moviemaker and then loaded to SD card my projector reads. I downloaded the newest material from Atmos FX in the jack o lantern Jokes but the down load is 1080 and the DVD of course is not. I tried editing the downloads with handbrake and set the properties to match the reported properties of the DVD versions but when put thru handbrake the reset 1080 file is to short and narrow looking. The problem is there is a very noticeable transition from the DVD clips top the downloaded ones. Any one know how to combine the two so the transition is eliminated if not reduced?
Id like to have them so the funny faces clip plays then a song then a joke , a story and FF again, next song , FF, Story Joke etc. so it loops thru all the projections.
Thanks...

Start with what format the funny faces are in 4x3 Standrad Definition or 16x9. If the faces are 4x3 then when you put them in movie maker or handbrake you will get black bats above and below. It also sound sounds like somthing is non-anamorphic, whether its the projector or how you did your playback.

First, start with your projector. Make sure it is set to 16x9 native or at least will view HD material properly, whether you are plugged in via composite, vga, or component/hdmi.

In movie maker, save movie as a 1080 high definition display and as a 16:9 widecreen aspect ration. You can find that setting in the Project tab. I have made a 40 minute mp4 with a combination of 4x3 and 16x9 video clips, Atmos, Hallowindow, disney, etc and the only change I see when playing them on my 16x9 projector are black bars on the side of the 4x3 material. If your projector does not do anamorphic, save movie as 4x3 (again, in the Project tab) and see if that solves your issue
