Black border around melded video file

Post by patrice »

I build a video by adding avi tracks. The tracks all have 576 x 432 resolution. When I meld the project to an mp4 file, using the same resolution, I get a black border around the video that did not exist in the original. What do I need to do to remove the border?

Thanks!

Is the border all the way around the video or just on two sides? How wide is the border?

It's all the way around. My guess is about 40 pixels wide. If you want I can zip and send you a source clip (avi) and the melded mp4 file and/or the videomeld project. I am sure I am doing something wrong. I just don't know what it is nor where to look.

In Options | Project Settings make sure that the "Video aspect ratio" is set to "4:3". When melding the video, make sure that "Maintain aspect ratio" is off. Does that help?

Chris,

Yes that did it: I set "Video aspect ratio" is set to "4:3" and made sure "Maintain aspect ratio" was off when melding and the black band disappeared all around.

Thank you so much. I would never have figured that one out by myself.
