Actually, I should get some images, then go to work in Photoshop to create a visual diagram...

Can't you just picture cute Amelie getting ass raped by a French De Niro look-alike?

This is unfortunate... I don't know if this was on purpose or what..

Everything's on purpose.

I know, clockwork. I know. But no one will fucking explain it! I'm not quite as experienced as everyone else with this ratio shit, but when i asked as a separate thread, P told me to look at this, which I had already previously looked at as my separate thread explains. So i said 'what the fuck' and i made another brief inquiry as to how to actually letterbox, in general. And still no one answers... It better be something better than taping cardboard to the screen. But seriously, I know what it is, and I understand it's been covered in specific territory, but what I wanna know is how the fuck to do it at all. Hopefully that clears anything up.

well, i would first rip the dvd video  and sound to workable formats.  then i would import it into premiere or some other editing program.  then simply apply a black "letterboxed" mask...then push it back out to DVD.
