Default Black bars? 4:3-16:9-2.35 Widescreen Fullscreen Scope OAR sticky threads

There are 3 basic shapes of movies:

A) Academy (1.37 wide)
B) Flat Widescreen (1.66-1.85 wide)
C) Anamorphic "Scope"/70mm Widescreen (2.00-2.75 wide)


Your 16:9 widescreen display is 1.78 wide.


Movies of shape "B" will fill your screen

Movies of shapes "A" and "C" will not.

How Do I Get the Full Screen??

? regarding hdmi and a 1080i tv (black bars on widescreen)

16:9 FullFrame or 2.39:1 letterbox formatting for Scope films on Blu-ray Discs?

Aspect Ratio List?

and other latest, recent threads about black bars.


and maybe

PS3 and scaling

any way to "zoom in" on the movies?

? ALL EXPERTS: Regular DVDs playing in letterbox (PS3)

Note: ^^ Since these PS3 posts above ^^ were made, the PS3 has adquired some uspscaling abilities far beyond mortal men with the latest firmwares, so some info on those PS3 posts might not apply now.
