it has somethin to do with adobe some setting because i can make a movie without the bars and at the right res with virtual dub but when i load the movie with adobe its got bars on it
what software are you using to get a 1600x900 video ?
I know you said you are using the DESKTOP setting to set the sequence to 1600x900 but if your footage is smaller there will be black bars.
right click the footage and check the properties. copy that and paste here.
when exporting you can put a check in the box for "match sequence settings" button.
to answer your question im using counterstrike source video game and the start movie command in 1600 x 900 and 16:9 resolution. ive also tried virtual dub and i can get it to where it has no bars on virtual dub but not adobe. hopefully this is all the settings you asked for. maybe it has to do with me not knowing what settings to use?? but this is as close as ive gotten
using the i frame only mpeg for the codec(only one i could do a custom res on i think)
width and hieght 1600 x 900
pixel aspect ratio d1/dv ntsc widescreen 16:9(unsure of what to use closest i could find)
here are the properties of the video i made with no bars that im trying to edit in premier
Type: AVI Movie
File Size: 8.7 MB
Image Size: 1600 x 900
Pixel Depth: 0
Frame Rate: 60.00
Total Duration: 00:00:07:08
Average Data Rate: 1.2 MB / second
Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.0
basically this gives me a video with no bars on top which is great. but it has bars on the side which is not so great.
I sent you a Private e-mail
Also when you do get your movie done where do you want to play it ? Youtube ? DVD ?
i would like to play this video in 720p or 1080p HD youtube. the image you just posted just did it man.
which codec should i use?? I was just choosin xvid because i thought it was good. it lets me choose which codec i want in my virtual dub before i put it in premier
xvid is a delivery format and not good for editing.
What other choices do you have ?
i have uncompressed rgb/ycr
intel iyuc codec
microsoft video 1

I hear others using fraps but I personally have not done any screen recording so I dont have experience with that.
I would just try all of them and see what works best.
At least now it looks like your set up to do some editing.

yes thanks for all the info. ive only been using virtual dub because premirer wasnt loading my images aat 1600 x 900 like they were supposed to but since this fixed the issue im going to try and do that. do you know the best setting for 720p or 1080p youtube video?? or maybe a good tutorial to start
just edit them and chose the h.264 Format with the YouTube Widescreen HD Preset.
That will take your 1600x900 and create a 1280x720 video.
You can tweak those settings if you want it a different size.
I would just stick with the 1280x720 preset. Since you only have 900 vertical it looks better to take it down to 720 then to upscale it to 1080.
