I am in the midst of getting some VHS tapes onto disc, so I was going to experiment with either a 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio, both for the film, and the menus. I have now discovered that PP6 no longer switches to 4:3 menus when that is the desired aspect. In PP5 it still opens a selection of 4:3 menus to choose from. Am I correct in seeing this? One of the new features of PP6 is the removal of the 4:3 menu support? I have also been looking for 4:3 menus on Dzone for 2 days, but they are all missing! Powerdirector seems to have the same issue, I can use a 16:9 menu but then need to re-arrange the buttons. Did I miss the death of 4:3 support?

Hello Barry,

When I set the AR to 4:3 in PowerProducer, I am presented with a range of menu templates that display as 4:3, as you can see in the attached screenshot.

As far as DirectorZone is concerned, it seems like ALL the menu templates have a 16:9 label on them, even if they were created as 4:3. Example That may be because the menu templates can be used in either 16:9 or 4:3 projects.

Are you able to create a menu template that is specifically 4:3? I'm not sure that can be done, but I've been wrong many times before.

It has been passed along that 4:3 menus are a thing of the past. Fair enough, at least I know to stop looking for them. My website http://bgillcyberstudio.com/index.html LINKS TO PDTOOTS & hundreds of other valuable resources!
