    How to render widescreen project with 4:3 components for YouTube?

    philaculture

      I made a newbie error in setting up my first Premiere Elements 7 project - I selected 720p preset even though all the media I was importing was 4:3 (Flip cam standard res video/audio, and screen-captured (from a 4:3 screen) video of a PowerPoint Presentation).

       

      When I used the built-in share-to-YouTube function, I got black framing above and below, as well as on either side, which makes the clips of the slide show completely illegible. Is there a way to render the video and then do a separate upload to YouTube so that it will at least be just standard letterboxing with the black on the sides? I really don't want to have to start over completely (though I learned an important lesson about preset selection!)

       

      Thanks,
