All that's required is that you also ensure that your project settings match your source video, to start with.
What kind of camcorder is your video coming from? Which settings did you select when you set up your Premiere Elements project?
Thanks for the quick response
I'm checking out the link right now, I'll see if it works.
Also I'm using a JVC HD Everio
I have video with added stills between clips
As for project settings, I'm not sure, I think I may have just created a new project with whatever settings were set already, I don't remember changing any of them.
followed the guide, it gave me HD, but I still has the black bars surrounding the video top, bottom, left right.
Not sure what to do.
EDIT: Found the project settings, and I assuem there lies the problem. I can't seem to be able to change the project settings mid-projects, but I can make a new project and simple import the old project into the new one with the new settings.
The question is what settings should I try?
EDIT2 : ok, I've run into another problem. I can't change the project settings of a finished project, and am unsure how to put my clips and stills into a new project, short of putting the raw clips back in and re-shorting them, and re-inputting all the audio and stills into a new project. Any ideas?
EDIT 3: Found the answer in the FAQs
You are correct. Once a Project has been started, there is no way to really change things mid-stream. A few have claimed luck with hacking the PREL file, but that takes some knowledge, talent and luck. I would not recommend it, unless someone is well versed in writing and reading XML.
