I have the main feature of each movie ripped to my Raid. I am aware TheaterTek uses a smart Aspect Ratio which sometimes works. But most of the time, I have to manually pick an AR for a first time played movie.ebr wrote:I'm not sure I completely understand what you're after but I've done a little bit of looking into this myself because I'm looking into getting a lens and am trying out a HTPC setup for some of my DVDs.
I assume you have setup your "custom" 2.35:1 aspect ratio as defined in the TheaterTek manual. There is a section dealing specifically with your situation (anamorphic lens).
From my reading of this, it appears that TT can very intelligently handle the AR control and adjust it even between the menu, main title and extras (which all could have different ARs). So, it wouldn't make sense to set the AR with a command before the movie starts. Do you mean you want a command that defines your custom AR as the aspect ration for the main title of this particular DVD?
I think there is a hotkey you can use to do this in TT so you could probably use a command to send this key. The problem is know when to send it. It would need to be done while the main title is playing, not the menu or an extra or preview.
Also, the new TT plugin for ML appears to have defined some AR related commands. Maybe those will do what you want.
But, I must have not really understood what you are after or what the issue is because it seems like the first time you played each movie, you could bring up the AR editor and define the proper AR and it would then be set forever. Maybe dealing with others playing a movie for the first time who won't know how to do this...?
