Hi, thanks for reading.
I've got Vegas Movie Studio 9. I am making a Free-Running video.
My camera (Sony mini DV camera, HC37E) records at 720x576. I think that's a 5:4 ratio.
In Vegas, my footage gets windowboxed (pillarboxed AND letterboxed). Titles and transitions (basically all editor-generated media) are not windowboxed, they completely fill the screen.
This happens in both the preview window and exported renders.
On both youtube and windows media player, the footage bits have wide pillarboxes and thinner letterboxes. In fullscreen, there is no pillarboxing but there are just some thin letterboxes.
Is this the way it needs to be, just because of the nature of my camera, or do I need to change some Vegas settings?
Thankyou so much if you can help me. It took me 10 months to get all my footage and now I'm finally editing I've got pretty worried about this.
