            Original size 4GB, 2560x1080,  Framerate 30,  taken with Fraps Video Decompressor  (AVI)

             

            And after rendering in Premiere it's full HD (1920x1080) 16:9 but with black border above and below.

              If your video editor is Premiere Elements, your best may be what you have gotten (with black borders).

               

              But, I have an idea. If it works great, if not, so much for that great idea.

               

              I will try first for a 1920 x 815 and see what happens.

               

              But even if you get a 21:9 video, where are you going to play it?

               

              More later.

                Now it's in 21:9 but only small size of it

                 

                It is possible somehowe change the sequence if i start a new project? I only found tutorials for Premiere Pro and in Elements i can't change anything ( i guess it's because of novice users).

                 

                I wanna sometime upload some videos on youtube, but if this not work in 21:9 aspect ratio and only with borders i must render it in 16:9

                  I have spent the evening working out the details of importing and exporting 21:9 video into Premiere Elements 12/12.1 so that you do not get black borders in the Edit area or when you view the export. I have ordered all of that into a blog post which I will publish within the hour. I will post the link to that blog post here then.

                   

                  Reminder, once you set a project preset in Premiere Elements project you cannot change it. You start a new project if the project preset is not correct. That is the party line. But, I have described a way for doing just that without having to start a new project. However often it is easier just to start a new project. But this is another story for another time.

                   

                  Let us see how you do with the 21:9 video matter.

                    This is the link to the blog post that I just published on 21:9 video in Premiere Elements importing, editing, and exporting.

                    Please review and consider.

                     

                    Any questions or need clarification, please let me know. I have not tried an upload of the Premiere Elements Timeline to YouTube using the Premiere Elements YouTube feature  because Premiere Elements 12/12.1 Social Websites/YouTube does not have an export preset to cover it.

                     

                    I suspect that, if YouTube will accept the 21:9 video, it will be by saving the Premiere Elements Timeline to the 1920 x 822 export and then uploading that file to YouTube at the YouTube web site.
