Not enough info about your dvd's. Your post is confusing. Are you converting DVD (MPEG) to BluRay? There's a myth that DVD is "bad". BluRay is just another version of MPEG. Re-encoding doesn't automatically make DVD "better". In fact re-encoding loses quality if not done correctly and carefully.
You can stretch your 4:3 DVD's to 16:9 if you want. We don't recommend it, and few users here will listen to complaints about stretcherd videos looking blurred or distorted. If you mean that you have 16:9 letterboxed images on your source discs, that's another story. To re-process them into full-screen 16x9 videos, be prepared for lots of work.Our inventions are wont to be pretty toys, which distract our attention from serious things. They are but improved means to an unimproved end. -- Henry David Thoreau

i have old (1980s) dvd that have 4:3 aspect ratio and i want to convert each episodes to mkv or mp4 and i want the converter video file to be able to play in full screen.
tools i have are handbrake, imtoo, aimisoft
question: what do i have to do to make that happen? do i crop the video from the start of converting?
my 2nd question about blu-ray is when converting a file to mkv, how to calculate the video and audio data bite rate?
example: a single blu-ray mpegts file is 35gb, if i use imtoo converter and put the settings on high quality, the output size is still around 20gb, but i have seen some videos on the internet having the same video around 14gb but better quality.
i don't mind taking the long road, but how do i convert my files so the video quality is very high, but at the same stay around a reasonable size 12-15gb?
also one more question; how do i merge 1080p m4v files together and how to merge different resolutions m4v files together?
