Thanks to everyone who has helped me so far. I now would like to eliminate the black vertical lines on each side of the video and on the buttons. Is there a setting which would enable me to do this,please? Johnj
If your rendered video is 16:9 and you have small black bands on either side then I think the only thing that will correct that is to render the project again in VMS and put a check mark in the render option 'Stretch video to fill output frame size (do not letterbox). I leave this option checked for all my projects. Other, more knowledgeable posters in this forum will correct me if I'm wrong.
If the black bands are narrow and only at the sides it could be because you are using HD material in a SD Widescreen project. With PAL (I'm not sure about NTSC) SD widescreen is actually slightly wider than the 1.7777 ratio it should be. So you need to stretch as Jack S suggests or alternatively crop a little off the top/bottom.
Hello, I am afraid I am not familiar with the term VMS as I am not technically aware. This is my retirement project and I'm rather learning as I go along. Would you mind pointing me n the right direction on this? Thanks JohnJ
