    Does any understand "interpretation rules.txt" so my 704x576 pixels fill a 720x576 frame?

      This is my LAST attempt before ditching Premiere Elements 8 Trial. I have really tried hard to make it work.


      All I want to do is drag my clips onto the timeline and have them corretly fill the 720x576 frame (PAL widescreen), ready to export to DVD (PAL) when ready.


      Adobe explains a little on how to go about fixing it, but I can't get it to work:

      I tried to add to "interpretation rules.txt":  704,  576, *, *, * = 768/720, *, *, *

      I also tried: 704, 576, *, *, * = 768/702, *, *, *


      When I drag my 704x576  footage to the timeline I'm still asked, "Fix quality problems in  clips", but I'm expecting it to automatically display the clip to fit  the 720x576 frame now that the rule has been added.

      - If I say YES the video is clipped at the top & bottom and isn't so nice.

      - If I say NO I get black borders at the sides and the aspect is wrong.


      If I use another package Womble MPEG, it all appears the correct aspect, exports to DVD and plays without any settings. I want to use Premiere!!!!
