Premiere Elements 13..This is probably a mismatch of settings.
Let us explore...
What computer operating system and what project settings (See Edit Menu/Project Settings/General and readings for Editing Mode, Timebase, Frame Size, and Pixel Aspect Ratio
even if the fields look grayed out.)
What were your export settings
and then what
and then what preset
Did you customize the preset selected or use the default settings for it?
Any question or need clarification, please do not hesitate to ask.
Hello! Here are the settings currently used.
Windows 7 Classic
Editing Mode: 1080i (grey)
Timebase: 29.97 frames/second (grey)
Frame Size: 1920 horizontal 1080 vertical
Pixel Aspect: Square Pixels 1.0 (grey)
Export for Computer -
Preset: NTSC DV
The basic issue that I am seeing is you taking a 16:9 project into a 4:3 export.
If you want a DV.mov file as the export, then select the Publish+Share/Computer/QuickTime with Presets = NTSC DV 16:9 and let us know
We may have to do more fine tuning, but.....
We need to go back to the beginning and evaluate
a. properties of source media imported into the project -
interlaced or progressive
pixel aspect ratio
b. does the project preset set (1080i30 - 1920 x 1080 @ 29.97 interlaced frames per second) match the properties of your source media
c. before you leave the Edit area are there any black borders showing in the monitor there?
c. are the export settings consistent with the project settings?
Please supply the information first for "a", and we will suggest the rest.
Do you have an export requirement...MPEG2.mpg, AVCHD.mp4, or H.264.mov? What frame size do you
want for the export - 1920 x 1080 16:9 or do you really want a SD rather than HD export?
We will be watching for further details.
