    It'd be nice if CloneBD could output a file that's cropped to just the size of the movie within the 1920*1080 input from the original disk. For instance 1920*800 is suitable for many recent films.

    True, but (TV) screens don't work like that. If the output wouldn't match 16:9 resolution then the TV's add black bars back themselves to obtain 16:9 despite you having removed the actual bars.

    You can play movie files in Windows on larger screens. Smaller files are nice too.

    A Cinemascope zoom/crop feature will definitely be added once the really heavy stuff is done.
    Note, though, that removing the black bars will not result in smaller files. AVC compresses these black areas down to practically 0 bytes.

    True but those are software based players and usually zoom in a little to fill the screen completely. TV screens don't work like that. Unless the movie is shot in 16:9 or 16:10 adaptive widescreen there will be black bars. If your cropped image doesn't use the full TV screen, then the TV will simply add the bars back to obtain optimal screen use.

    Just an example.

    Great, e.g. Kodi automatically displays this correctly on a 21:9 screen.
