You cant make a 16:9 out of 4:3 material. Use a SD(4:3) Preset.
or get Intstant HD plugin.
Search for the Adobe Tutorial on Time Remapping. (Support Document)
It explains it very clearly
Back when most of us were still shooting in 4x3 the majority of the time and then needed to have a 6x9 version to show later, we just did the letter boxing effect by placing black bars at the top and bottom of a video. Instead of exporting a 6x9 video it would still be 4x3, but it would look like 6x9 because of the letter boxing.
Many thanks Mr. Craig
i recently switched from sony vegas to premier, so i am kind new and still learning...
when you mentioned about about "Use a SD(4:3) Preset. "
you mean select Adobe SD -SDINTSC from custom settings >>editing mode, while creating a new project?
oh yeahhh Mr. Charles !!!.....lol
many thanks man...
i think that is gonna work, but i still wonder , how come premier being such a powerful software and don't allow you to do that ?
thanks craig..and charles

That was Craig who mentioned the Instant HD plugin. I've never used it. I know Red Giant makes it though (the same people who make magic bullet). I assume it upconverts SD to HD. Boris has an upconverter called "Uprez" that does a good job of that too.

It does allow you to do what Charles said. ie Letterbox and image.
Ok Craig thanks
i think for now i am gonna go with black letter box, but hopefully i can find the correct way to resolve this issue.
thanks Charles for plug in info, i am gonna look into that now..
Many thanks Eddie
got the time remapping.
The correct (only) way to "resolve the issue" properly is to shoot 16:9.
The plugin is a workaround and the letterbox is a simulated look. (Neither are true 16:9)
Yeah Craig thanks
yeah i was gonna shoot in 16:9 but then i realized that i had more headroom with 4:3, so that's Y i did that...
I just wanted to share some thoughts with you all here:
i 've been using sony vegas since last 3 years and recently switched from vegas to premier cs3 and i am shocked by the quality of overall
>how come premier being such a powerful software and don't allow you to do that ?
It's like asking PPro to make wine out of water. It can be done, but requires time, quality compromises, expense and experience/skill.
Stick with 4:3.
>yeah i was gonna shoot in 16:9 but then i realized that i had more headroom with 4:3, so that's Y i did that...
NO you dont. Headroom is a framing and compositional matter that is considered by the camera operator and not the format. (May be you get less leg room with 16:9)
You could always turn the camera on the side and get more headroom if you want.
ok, go ahead, call me a hijacker...
i'm editing some HD footage shot on my beautiful new EX1. i recalled having some similar stuff shot on 4:3 SD years ago, so dug out the tapes and there are some clips i'd like to use from them. are there better methods of using the older footage in my HD 16:9 project than resizing the 4:3 clips in Premiere?
thanks and sorry for the hijack
