Videographer dubbed my BetaSP tape to MiniDV. Then I captured MiniDV tape footage to Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5 (via Firewire). Within Premiere I observe a vertical black area on left edge of every frame (and to a lesser extent on the right edge and at the bottom of every frame).
I'm assuming this a resolution mismatch issue?
I captured in Premiere at standard DV 720x480. (w/ 0.9 pixel aspect ratio)
Should I capture at higher res (720x480) and downsample? Or should I resize within Premiere. Would either process degrade the captured video quality to a significant degree? How would I go about doing either?
I see that I can "crop" in Premiere, but after trimming rows of pixels on edges the video auto resizes to "original" dimension. Will this decrease the quality of the video significantly.
Goal is to edit this video in with some other video within Premiere (other video was shot in DV, cloned to MiniDV and then captured to Premiere. ...I don't see any black areas around this captured video. Only in the video converted from Beta SP).
Then plan is to output final master to DVD format (NTSC 4:3).
Thanks for any ideas.
