I have an interesting dilemma with my imported video that I am trying edit in and ultimately export using Adobe Premiere. I used a Mini DV compliant camera that supported a "widescreen" feature of some unknown size at a 16:9 ratio. I captured the video using Windows Movie Maker and the original ratio that was shot with the camera was preserved. Now when I attempt to open it in Premiere it forces the video down to 640x480 standard ratio thus "smushing" the image leaving black bars on the side of the frame and elongated shapes. Can someone please tell me if there is a way to convert this video so that the widescreen aspect is restored.
Thanks in advance.
