Video uses non-square pixels -- unlike your photos, which use square pixels.
If you put a 640x480 image into your video, it will fit perfectly in a 720x480 video frame.
So there is no setting to make the image fit properly in Premiere?? I have already spent hours making these blocks in Photoshop, and redoing them would be a hassle.
If you've got Photoshop CS - CS4, you can change the pixel aspect ratio of your photos to .9 DV.
Otherwise, you can right-click on one of the pictures on the timeline and select Open Properties. Then open the Motion settings and uncheck Constrain Proportions for Scale and set the scale for the horizontal to 90%. That should make that picture perfect.
Then right-click on that picture on your timeline and select Copy, then lasso or shift-click to select all the other photos on your timeline, right-click and select Paste Attributes.
Great book I wrote, by the way. Full of gems like this! ;)
Make sure Scale to Frame Size is not checked in Edit/Preferences (or is it Edit/Project Settings?)
But, even if you turn it off, it won't have any effect on the photos that are already in your project. You may have to right-click on each photo and turn Scale to Frame Size off manually.
Or you could do it to one photo and then use Copy/Paste Attributes to carry it to all the others.
