I do set the new production setting at 16:9. When a clip is added to the story line , I right click on the clip and the option "aspect ratio" is there-niether setting changes the view. The clips are all from a Sony mini disc Camera. I have 2009 version of Creator on my old PC, when I add the very same clips to the 2009 videowave, they appear in proper perspective. Don't know what else to try?
