Welcome to the forum.
If you need to alter the material, AME (Adobe Media Encoder) can do that for you.
Also, you can Import the original material into a Project w/ a Sequence to match, edit and then Export to the desired Frame Size.
Why do you want to do that?
1920x1080 fits in a 1440x1080 sequence just perfectly and v.v.
The original image is stretched horizontally and I want to fix this by resizing the video output to fill the full frame (4:3) without the lines that appear above and below, Premiere is not allowing me this.
I can do it using video converters but the results do not convince me, do not make the 4 processor cores and cause loss of frames in the video.
So I prefer to edit and convert directly into Premiere.
(I used google translator to write this)
it sounds like you want to fit something 16:9 into 4:3 and I think you have to crop it left and right to keep the up and down without black lines. Is that what ou mean?
if i understand correctly, you have this:
and want that:
so cropping is not the way to go, but squeezing.
Bill already provided your way to go, but maybe i can clarify this for you:
You create a sequence, that matches your desired output:
1440x1080 square pixels with an aspect ratio of 4:3
you then drop your stretched clip in there and use the effects control panel to scale only the width down to 75%
then export your sequence with 1440x1080 and a pixel- aspect ratio of 4:3
The original image is stretched horizontally
That's a little confusing, given the dimensions you're talking about. Where exactly did you get the clip?
1920x1080 and 1440x1080 are both widescreen if you are going to 4;3 you will have to cut of the sides.
Can you upload a clip e.g. with YouSendIt. Send it to yourself and post the link here on the forum.
