Hi

I've been reading some other forums on how to convert avi movies from widescreen to fullscreen and it seems pretty difficult and is still unclear to me. So I was wondering how do I take an AVI file that is widescreen and convert it to fullscreen? Is it even possible?

Now I prefer widescreen on a tv, but these movies of mine are going to watched on a MP4 player, so I wanted them in fullscreen format.

Do you have Nero

Click start smart

Click symbol 4th from left to get the DVD options, click make movie, click the magnifying glass, click browse, locate the clip, add the clip, click blue + to add it to timeline

Click more, click video options, click DVD-Video, put the dot in 4:3 for aspect ratio

Click export, the file will go to NeroVision / Exported Video

Let me know if that part goes OK
