    PE9 Nikon DSLR Clips OK Preview, Black Bars Output

    GaryLA4G Level 1

      I've tried everything I can think of but my output to MPEG video narrow black horizontal bars and wide black vertical bars around the video (Windows Media Player).  I read online posts, watched tutorials, done web searches.  All the advice says to either uncheck the "scale to frame" setting or match the source material to the project settings. I've done those and when they didn't work I experimented with other presets (including output settings).  I understand frame size, aspect ratio and scaling but not much else.  Anyway, this matchup *looks* like it should work.  There are mismatches - most obviously the frame rate - but I don't have any alternatives that get me any closer.
