Hey all, I decided to come here to ask for some help with this little issue that has been driving me nuts!
Let me start off with saying recently I kind of 'upgraded' a little bit and went from using Vegas Platinum 8 to HD Platinum 10. Also I purchased a new camera, the Canon VIXIA HV40. I love the way everything looks. A step up from using a little camera like I was.
I've just finished editing a little short clip, and i'm all ready to render. The project screen already has the two black bars on the top and bottom, and i'm guessing it because I'm using HDV tapes? Pretty much it was there after I imported from my camera.
Here's the issue when I render it, the video comes out 'squished' I guess you could call it. My best explanation is that it took the widescreen that was in the project screen and added another widescreen to it. Basically making all of us look fat. I've tried messing with it, but it comes out the same way over and over. And i'm trying to get it to be in HD since the quality on my Project screen looks so good.
As a new user of this camera, HDV tapes, and Vegas Platinum 10, Any help would be greatly appreciated!
