Thank you for your help. I accidentally wrote Premiere Pro in my post, but I'm using Premiere Elements; that's why I asked here.
Sorry again; this is my first time here and I may be having some trouble navigating the forums.
Excellent, you ARE in the correct forum.
As for the quality and also the black borders (usually caused by a mis-match between the Source Footage and the Project's Preset), can you list the full specs. of your Source Footage, and also your Project Preset.
Good luck, and thanks for that info,
The problem were indeed the project's Preset settings. I was looking at the opposite end of the job, so it took me quite a little time to find what it was. I changed the settings to something that looked similar to the source footage and now I don't have the black frame anymore.
Again, thank you for your help. Cheers!
This is quit common. The Project must match the Source Footage, as closely, as is possible.
Then, when edited, one would choose the appropriate Export/Share settings to get a final output, that meets their needs.
The one exception to this is when one is doing SlideShows, with Still Image ONLY, i.e. no Video. Then, they would look to the output, setup their Project for that, and Scale the Still Images to match that. Remember, that is with Projects, that have NO Video.
Good luck, and glad that the forum was helpful.
