    How can I make 16:9 the default import  format in PE7?

      Clips recorded in 16:9 (PAL) format on my JVC Everio hard drive camcorder show up in 4:3 format when imported into Premiere Elements 7. This means all the clips are distorted vertically.

      I have discovered that I can convert them to 16:9 by displaying them in "Edit", highlighting them, right-clicking and then selecting "Interpret Footage | Conform to DV1/DV PAL Widescreen 16:9". But it's a hassle having to do this every time. Is there a way of fixing 16:9 as the DEFAULT import setting so that all my imported clips are correctly displayed automatically? (You can do this on Corel's VideoStudio 11.)
