What model of camcorder is your video coming from and what format and resolution is it?
When you set up your Premiere Elements project, which settings did you select?
Which output option did you select and what do you ultimately plan to do with the video you output?
Getting the video to match the size and shape of your video frame is a matter of matching your video to the correct project specs and output. Simply choosing the right output alone won't work.
Ok it's being outputed as an AVI video, 1600x900, 15fps. Does this help in any way?
Thank you for your time Steve.
Nope. An AVI could be made up of any of hundreds of possible codecs.
But if you answer my questions, we'll be able to help you.
Still waiting for brand & model of camera, also...
These questions below may be for a different product... but the information you need to supply is the same, for the products you use

Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... a screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing
So sorry guys....I thought I mentioned it in the last reply. It's not video from a camera it's video from a screen capture. There is no camera envolved. I recorded my PC screen using a program called BB Flashback.
I set up the Premier Elements project to NTSC-AVCHD-FULL HD 1080i 30
Initailly I selected the Adobe Flash video setting and my plans for this video is to upload it to Youtube so that it has HD as an option for those that watch the video.
So is the video exactly 1920x1080 in size at 30 fps?
If not, you're going to get a black border.
These discussions are about other screen capture programs, but they MAY help

Thanks guys. I believe I figured out the solution in the Fraps thread that John shared above. Throught the output options of Premier Elements I was able to adjust the pixel count and once the video was uploaded to Youtube there were no black borders.
