Importing 4:3 clip into widescreen movie

Jan 23, 2013 7:18 PM

Tags: #premiere_elements_10

I am putting together a movie that contains pictures and videos.  I have two sources of video - one is widescreen 16:9 and the other is 4:3.  How do I import a 4:3 clip into a widescreen movie?


I don't mind if the movie ends up 4:3.  Would it be better/easier to import a clip from a 16:9 format into a 4:3 movie?

    When you Import that 4:3 footage into the 16:9 Project, do you have any problems?


    If the files Import fine, into the 16:9 Project, you have two choices: leave the black bars, or Scale the footage up, effectively cropping off some of the top & bottom, or, with Motion>Position, one of those.


    Good luck,
