    MP4 imported is cropping too tightly before I ever start editing

      last weekend, I took a video with my Motorola Droid Razr MAXX and transferred it to my Win 7 PC.  The file runs fine on both my phone and in mp4 format on my computer, but I wanted to use Premiere Pro 5.0 to do some subtitling.

       

      I've had no problems in the past importing video from my webcam or from DVD, but as soon as I imported it into Premiere Pro 5.0 , It's doing odd cropping before I ever start editing.  I'm getting everyone's chest and hips and losing their heads and feet.  What am I setting up wrong that it would crop like this before I ever start to edit?

       

      I fully admit that I don't know WHAT to pick on that first screen that pops up asking what kind of format I want to use, so it's quite possible that I'm just picking the wrong one there (it defaults to DV-NTSC Widescreen 32 KHz).  I've tried a couple of the options under DV-NTSC (whatever that stands for) but they all seem to do this cropping.  There are so many options on that first panel that I'd just be guessing...and this might not even be the problem.

       

      In case a picture is worth a thousand words, I've put a screen print of my Premiere screen at www.improventures.com/temp/temp.htm where it's easier to read than below .
