Set your sequence to match the exact properties of your source material, resolution, PAR, fps, etc. They currently do no match.
Thanks for the reply. I had a feeling it was something along those lines but I do not know where/how you do this.
How do I do this with the project I have already finished? Or do I have to start again fr
om the begining?
How do you do this?
One way is to find out what you have by using the FREE http://www.headbands.com/gspot/ and then set your project to match
Another way may be to drag the video to the NEW ITEM option... 2nd post for NEW ITEM pointer http://forums.adobe.com/thread/770072?tstart=0
Also, what is NOT in the trial http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/407/kb407938.html
And, some reading is in order... CS5 User Guides - online and PDF
Note the link in the upper right corner of the individual pages, where you may download & save the PDF
I have tried those options but it still exports with the borders.
The file I'm using is .vob and is already in a 16:9 format (with the letter box borders). Is there a way to change the ration of this to fit screen without the borders??

After you download and save the PDF, search for "crop" and "scale to fit" (without the " ") which MAY help
OK, when starting with material that is not really designed to be edited, there can be problems, but mainly with regard to quality, as what you have has already been compressed to MPEG-2, the format/CODEC for DVD's. This ARTICLE will also give you some background on working with DVD/VOB material.
If the VOB's are 100% DVD-compliant (very important), then CS5 will work with them. However, you mention the trial. That has limitations, and I think that John T. has already posted a link to those limitations. The MPEG-2 material will be a big problem for the trial.
PS - if your Timeline still shows black borders, then the Project Preset still does not match your source footage.
You are attempting to edit already compressed material.
It's always best to obtain the original clips in their native format.
Then you create project or multiple sequences based on the properties of each respective clip.
If you have multiple clips from different cameras/sources.
I cant get hold of the original clips as its just a mess about while I try to learn the ropes but I would like to get this finished as I like it.
When its showing up in the timeline view and watching on WMP, it only has the top and bottom black lines. When I watch online (Youtube, Facebook, it has it all the way around??????
How does the lad stretch the video in the timeline on that video (1:48 in)
I've search on the internet all day and I'm going to get stuck into the PDF tomorrow but I'm not good at taking in information like that.
Ignore it, I figured it out lol.
Gonna get stuck into the PDF now hahaha
