I'm having troubling exporting a video correctly. When I render & export, the video file (.f4v) is zoomed in. I've read elsewhere that this might be a problem with the original footage size not matching the sequence settings, but I've checked and all files are listed as "scale to fit".
I'm using Elements 12. Export settings are: F4V, 1920x1080, Frame Rate: Same as source.
Included in the video are a few clips from video games that I scaled to a larger size (as the original videos were all too thin to fill the screen width-ways). There's also a few title scenes in which text appears over a blank, black background, with video files fading in. Other than that, there's nothing unusual to my normal use and I've never had this issue before.
Can anyone suggest a fix? Thanks for your help!
What model of camcorder is your original footage coming from and what is the resolution and format of that video?
What are your project settings? (You'll find them under the Edit menu. Select Project Settings/General.)
What happens if, instead of the Flash Video settings, you Publish & Share/Computer using the AVCHD option? Select the preset for YouTube Widescreen HD.
Thanks for your message. I actually tried exporting using the AVCHD option last night and that did work!
