    Music Video Top And Bottom Black?

    JackHasAProblem

      Straight to the point.

      Examples:

      Top and bottom barrier - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LpSqWgkWCcA

      Normal Widescreen - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnEZmk7as9Y

       

      Which, why?

      I've recorded a music video on my canon 600D using the 35mm prime lens all great quality in 1080p 25fps 1920 x 1080, have i recorded in the wrong size or do people put a plain black banner at the top and bottom of music videos, if so why?

       

      Also after exporting using AME youtube 25fps 1080p preset the video comes out quiet a bit darker than the original footage? should i be using 16bpc(same as sources), linerising workspace and using the workspace HDTV (rec.709) or am i heading into the wrong settings here?
