    4x3 imported into Premiere Elements 7.0 instead of 16x9

    Martyrdom

      Hi,

      I have a Canon Vixia HV30 Camcorder.  I have it set to record in HDV24 and to downconvert to WideScreen SD.
      The first frame or clip of each tape i use imported into Premiere Elements 7.0 as 4x3 video instead of 16x9 video. The subsequent frames or clips are imported into Premiere Elements 7.0 as 16x9 video/frames...I am using Windows XP Pro SP3.

      The only work around i have found is to shoot a one second frame first and then delete it in Premiere Elements when i import the tape...

      Thanks
      NBK
