Clip im importing is too big in program window, and too big in exported media

Hi all, would appreciate any help from you guys im going round the bend- im on a friends machine and trying out PP5 for the first time.    


I have a clip im trying to export with two other clips in the same sequence. The clip is a .mov file, 1920 x 1080.


When i right click on the two other clips (Mpegs, 320 x 240) and hit scale to frame, everything goes fine for them in the export and they fit the program window too perfectly. But for some reason when I do it with the above clip, there's lots missing around the edges. I'm even setting the project up to have 1920:1080 (16:9) before I start.


Also, when I import the offending clip into the source window it automatically sets it to 50% and it is viewable perfectly at 50% ( if I change the source window to 100% I can not see the whole frame in the source window). But at 50% in the program window, it is still cutting off huge amounts aroudn the edges.

Can someone please help and suggest some remedy for this? This is driving me demented. Cheers

    Set the Monitors to Fit instead of a hard percentage.
