    Sizing of 10980p DSLR video to fit with AVI (720 x480)

    SEM Clonetrooper

      In elements 9 I am trying to create a DVD where both the 1080p DSLR HD video and an AVI 720x 480 clip play full screen. I can one or the other to work but not both. The HD video look letter box or the AVI looks narrow on the sides.

      Any ideas?

          I'm assuming both clips are widescreen.

           

          Create a new project for your HD clip using the appropriate project setting (no red lines across the timeline when you first import the clip). Then use Share on this project to a 720x480 widescreen DV output. Add the output from this share to your 720x480 project and both should be full widescreen.

           

          Note that as your target output is DVD you inevitably lose some sharpness from the HD clip because DVD is only 720x480 NTSC.
