What version of Premiere Elements and what computer operating system?
Where did you get a 1680 x 1080 video (essentially 3:2 when video is typically 4:3 or 16:9) - from screen capture software or something else?
Please supply information requested and I will suggest the best possible way to get your 1680 x 1080 export that looks acceptable.
In export settings you will need to go under the Advanced Button of the export preset selected. The choice of project preset and export preset is important.
Adobe Premiere Elements 12
and Windows 10
Thanks for the reply.
Please consider and see what this looks like....
1. Open Premiere Elements 12/12.1 to its Expert Workspace
Go to Edit Menu/Preferences/General and remove the check mark next to Default Scale to Frame Size
Then File Menu/New/Project and Change Settings according to the following scheme
- Open the project to the Expert workspace, and go to File Menu/New Project and Change Settings.
- In Change Settings, set the project preset to NTSC/DSLR/1080p/DSLR email@example.com. OK out of there.
- In the New Project dialog that opens, rename the project and make sure to have a check mark next to "Force Selected Project Setting on This Project". OK out of there.
- Back in the Expert workspace, import your source media using Add Media/ choice.
2. In Premiere Elements Expert workspace, use Add Media/Files and Folders/Project Assets to import your 1680 x 1080 video (assumed at 29.97/30 frames per second)
3. Click on the monitor to bring up the image's bounding box, and use a bounding box handle to scale the image to fill the monitor space just to the point where no black borders are seen.
4. On the export side
Export & Share/Devices/Custom and Advanced Settings.
Then create your custom export preset for H.264.mp4 1680 x 1080 @ 29.97 progressive frames per second (Pixel Aspect Ratio = 1.0 Square).
