It sounds as though your original footage is 4:3 and your project settings are 16:9. Is that the case?
Please go to the Project Settings (under the Edit menu) and post the resolution and frame rate listed on the General page.
What model of camcorder is your original footage from? If your open this footage in G Spot or Media Info, what does it show is the resolution, frame rate and audio and video codec?
Thanks, its just a case of black bars after exporting and the video not filling up the whole screen.

Is your video completely surrounded by a black margin?
Your original post seems to imply that you've only got black bars on the sides -- which is unlikely if you're shooting in 1920x1080, which is 16:9.
Meantime, what are your Project Settings, listed under the Edit menu?
And is your original video MOV, AVI, MP4 or something else?
No....Just the sides after exporting. Nothing is highlighted under project settings except 25fps and title safe areas.

Are you saying your Project Settings are 1920x1080? I really need complete answers to my questions if you want me to help you.
Meantime, which output settings and presets are you selecting?
