    how to remove black bars after image rotation

    charoite72

      I am very new to using premiere pro. I took a video with my smartphone as the content for a project.  The original dimentions was 1280 wide and 720high.  I imported the video and needed to rotate it 90 degrees.   Instead of wide, I need it tall. I imported and then went under effects control - motion - rotation to rotate how I wanted.

      But now on the screen has black bars on the sides since rotating it, and when I export the basic video settings is greyed out, so I can't change it. It is set/fixed at 1280 x 720 with the black bars.

       

      How can I remove the side black bars in premiere pro to fit the dimensions of the newly rotated video?
