I'm trying to import my 1290 x 1080 ACVHD files into Premier Pro CS5. Even when I set my import setting to HD, I'm getting a 4:3 preview monitor with my footage letterboxed. There appear to be settings to change the resolution, but they're greyed out. I saw someone post this question about CS3 receive the suggestion that his software hadn't been activated. I have an option under help for "Deactivate", so I assume my copy is activated. Can someone tell me how to get Premier to let me set up my sequence or file settings for wide screeen? Any help would be appreciated.

You probably meant 1920 x1080 material.
Import and drag a clip to the New Item icon at the bottom of the project panel. It will automatically create the proper sequence settings.
Yeah, that was a typo. Doh! Thanks a lot for the advice. I'll try it out shortly!
