I cannot find a way to change the aspect ratio when making an MPEG into a DVD.
Can anyone recommend a good DVD Creator?

I use Ulead Videostudio for making DVDs, and it allows either 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratios. I see stuff related to TMPGEnc recommended sometimes too.

DVD-Lab, VERY easy to use, and pretty decent on the features it supports.

DVD Lab

Honesly, I picked that up and was burning a DVD in about an hour. With animated menu's, submenu's, picture slideshows, etc. But I haven't used many others, I don't know how it compares.

I was trying to do it too once (aspect ratio)...its such a pain...i went through like ALL softwares without finding a good solution. The only one i think will help you is VirtualDub..it streams in an input and you can add filters like "resize" to change its aspect ratio. However, the output files turn out to enormously large. Like a 200mb file would process its output with a 34GB file. I was just like wtf?!?! i gave up on that since it was just one video, and deciding to watch it on the computer only.
But give dvd-lab a try maybe it'll help. TMPGEnc "supposedly" does it, but its too confusing and I didnt bother spending another day with it. You also have to keep in mind the amount of time each takes to process. So you are waiting idle most of the time till the output is created and you see that it doesnt work (or works).

So ... see if you can figure out how to lower the output file size from virtualDub, that would help you. or give DVD-Lab or Ulead studio a try. I didnt try those, cus they are not free and trial versions either only does couple of minutes worth or has some annoying banner/ad in thr output video.
