    Media Encoder CS4 HDV to SD DVD crop issue

    jefbak Level 1

      System: MAC Premiere pro CS4 4.1.0

      Workflow for issue: NTSC HDV 30i project sequence (editing the native .mpeg files)


      When I export to media encoder from a HDV project/sequence and choose the Widescreen MPEG-2 DVD preset, the output preview shows black bars on the left and right sides of the image (image is below or opent the full size version attached).


      The export setting does not allow me to change anything related to the frame size so I can't figure out how to fix it.


      On a sidenote, because HDV is Upper field first and the DVD preset defaults to Lower field, a tiny black line appears at the top of the frame in output preview. When I change the DVD option to Upper, this goes away.


      Anybody else getting this issue?
