I wanted to test out my new camera and my new Premiere Pro CS5 software to see which format would be best for quality. The camera I'm using is a Panasonic GS230, shooting in 16:9 widescreen mode.
As you can see from the screenshot the source footage is in widescreen mode, but once placed on the timeline it turns into standard mode, and I have no idea how to get it back into widescreen. Even exporting the video in widescreen it's still in standard mode. I hope someone can help because I've been on google trying to find out what I'm doing wrong for about an hour now with no luck!
