I've recently upgraded from CS5 to 5.5 on 2 edit suites, and have the same problem with both:
I've got footage on a timeline - in this instance, a lossless avi rendered from AE.
On the timeline, the render state shows yellow.
If I move the play head, the still screen in the "Program" window is perfect.
If I play the timeline, it also looks perfect
However, if I render the work area (Shift Enter), the Programme window then shows a black bar at the sides and bottom of the screen.
So... I deleted the render files, and Exported, with Match Sequence Settings.
Same thing on the exported file, a black border at bottom and sides.
This is only since the upgrade - what setting have I got wrong?
Help much appreciated!
Shooternz: I wondered this.... but I dragged the clip onto the new sequence link so it'd make one the right size.
So the clip is 832 x 468 (1.0), and the sequence is exactly the same.
Jim: It was always an easy way to get a Master, which I then convert to the various formats with media encoder.
Worked fine in 5.0. Ok, I can work out some settings, but Adobe are supposed to be making my life easier with each upgrade, I hope... this seems like another step back.
