    Angry widescreen to synch with normal footage when editing

    can somebody help me please, i used 2 camera on a shoot one camera taped in ordinary mode and the other widescreen mode, now i'm trying to edit both together but when i add the widescreen footage to the ordinary footage i seem to get the ordinary playing fine but when it gets to the widescreen footage i get the black at the top and bottom of the screen,
    can somebody please tell me how i can get both to work full screen together..... please

    It might help if you tell us what software you are using.

    The basic principle is set you project properties to the wide screen footage then crop the 4:3 footage. You will loose some of the top/bottom of your 4:3 footage but thats as good as I can advise. The other way round can also be done ie set the properties to the 4:3 footage and chop off the sides of the wide screen. There way you will have to chop somewhere to make them fit together.
