I have Premiere Pro CS 5.5 and a Canon Legria HF S100 digital video camera. My frames are 1440x 1080. I have a widescreen Sony tv on which I want to play my video when it has been edited and burnt.
When I opened a new project in Premiere Pro I set it as follows:
Editing Mode: DV Pal
DV Pal Widescreen 23 KHZ
Pixel aspect D1/DV Pal Widescreen 16:9
However, I burnt the sequence as an experiment and lost lots due to cropping in the final version.
I used to have Premiere Elements. If memory served I set it as AVCD Full HD 1080i. I had no problems. I tried the AVCD 1080i setting on Premiere Pro but this didn't work either. I still got cropping.
Which settings are adviseable to ensure I can see the full clip on screen when it has been burnt? In addition, what is the difference between Anamoprhic and square pixels?
Sorry for banal questions. I got Premiere Pro because I was frustrated with Elements constantly crashing. I have to confess to being totally bewildered by the techinical information that I've read.
