Image Size, quality, coloring on tv from dvd

1.I have edited footage previously from my Samsung (HMX-F80) camcorder & was able to edit it without it showing in widescreen (the black bars at the top & bottom). I could then choose widescreen during the burning to DVD process.

Now on my new project, it is showing in widescreen.

I do not want to stretch it or click Scale To Frame Size as I will lose the edges of my footage.

I have .mp4 files from my camcorder & .vob files from a downloaded DVD in this project?


How can I restore the footage to fill the rectangle?



Info: Premiere Elements 11

mp4 Image Size: 1280 X 720

.vob Image Size: 720 x 480

Frame Rate: 29.97

Working on a PC


2. Also, my footage is now slightly pixelated. I’m hoping once I correct the above fill problem- this will then stretch the image thus correcting the pixelating.

I right-clicked on the preview screen & then clicked on Playback Quality & changed Automatic to Highest and that has slightly helped the pixelating.

I’ve never had this problem before & I don’t know what made it appear like this now.

Any thoughts to fully correct it?



3. Lately, the DVD’s I have created are showing a green tint on my tv. I have not changed any coloring effects.  On my PC, the coloring is perfect.  Any thoughts to correct this?


Thank you.

    What is the display aspect ratio of the 720 x 480, 4:3 or 16:9?


    And what is your is intended export, burn to disc DVD standard 4:3 or standard widescreen 16:9?


    When you were making key project settings decisions, what did you set as the Premiere Elements 11 project preset and did you end up:


    a. scaling the 1280 x  720 16:9 to fit a 4:3 monitor space


    b. scale the 720 x 480 4:3 to fit a 16:9 monitor space


    c. other
