When one gets either a Zoomed Frame, or gets black borders, it is usually a sign that the Sequence setting does not match the Frame Size of the Source Footage. In CS5/CS5.5, one can drag an Asset to the New Icon at the bottom of the Project Panel, to create a Sequence that does match.
Joe Bloe Premiere has a nice graphic on where the New Icon is. I'll grab his image and post that too.
Here is Joe's image:
Thanks to Joe!
Thank you for your response! That worked completely! Thank you!!
You are most welcome and thanks go to Joe Bloe Premiere for doing the graphic. As I do not have CS5.5 installed yet, my image would have been from an older version, and might have been a touch confusing.
my image would have had some snakes in it !
where it says " low on ammo" it would say " low on snakes ! "
FYI - you can ALSO right click on the clip in your timeline and choose "Scale to Frame Size." This is most useful if you've already built out a sequence or are using large footage items in an existing sequence, such as an HD video project for broadcast.
In these cases, you wouldn't want to use the drag-to-new-item method because you'd want to conform to an existing sequence or to your destination format.
