Hi yall, I have a canon HF10 high def camcorder and premiere elements 8.0. I recorded my movies in 1920 x 1080 format m2ts files. When i play it or export it on my TV or computer on full screen there is black bars surrounding the video; its in 16:9 format but its not fitting the whole screen. I interpret the clips as NTSC dv on the orgainize tab by adjusting the pixels but there is still black bars. Please help.
Unfortunately, you have posted to the Premiere (prior to Pro) sub-forum and want the PrElements forum.
Now, when one ends up with black bars, there is a mismatch between their Assets (source footage) and their Project Preset. The Project Preset must match the source footage 100%.
Start a New Project, with the Source Footage as a guideline. Choose the proper Project Preset and then Import/Capture your footage. You will have no black bars.
