this is a new idea I had for tv and movies:

I find it very annoying to always have to switch aspect ratio to best fit my screen (projector). So this is my idea:

1. Detect the "real" AR of source material (tv / movie) w/o black bars. That means MP has to do an edge detection (or whatevr it is called din english ;-)

2. MP knows what the resolution and ar of the destination (screen) is.

3. MP resizes the source material w/o black bars to best fit the destination screen.

Hope I find fans for this idea :)

I've many movies with multiple fanart generated from the movie. If you, as me, are tired of fanart is stretched out of proportion in MP for non-16/9 pics, then you can add black bars to the fanart pics instead. Then IrfanView is your friend, because this can be done in one batch process for all your fanart. For instance you can...
