    Why are exported movies letterboxed?

    Mehzers

      I'm looking at the video clips I imported into my computer, and they are the same aspect ratio as my screen, filling it up when I choose to play it in Full Screen. However, once I put the video in Premiere and then export it, the video becomes letterboxed, both vertically and horizontally, so that when I play Full Screen, the video is smaller and surrounded by a black frame.

       

      Why does it do this? And how do I change it so that it stops letterboxing my movies? Any help would be appreciated.

       

      PS I don't really know if this is still considered letterboxing.
