UPDATE: Interestingly enough, if I crop the video in PremierePro to a 4:3 proportion (rather than 16:9), I do not get the green bar. Unsure why that would be...
What's the proportion of the original video before exporting from Premiere Pro?
Have you tried Adobe Media Encoder?
Hi Steve - The properties include:
- File Path: C:\Users\laura.takach\Desktop\00053.MTS
- Type: MPEG Movie
- File Size: 970.6 MB
- Image Size: 1440 x 1080
- Frame Rate: 29.97
- Source Audio Format: 48000 Hz - compressed - Stereo
- Project Audio Format: 48000 Hz - 32 bit floating point - Stereo
- Total Duration: 00:18:37:00
- Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.3333
I haven't tried exporting in Media Encoder, since I'm assumed it would process it the same as Premiere Pro. Are there any settings you would recommend trying differently in Premiere Pro?
I don't use Premiere Pro. I have used Adobe Media Encoder. I'd just try different presets in AME.
BTW, I'd ask in the Premiere Pro forum.
Just to close out this discussion - I found that I could NOT resize the video in Premiere Pro. I had to publish the video with pre-established H.264 size settings. However, when I inserted the video into InDesign, I could reize the video using the standard size properties box.
Weird, but it works that way with no green bar.
