I shot a 4:3 video from an old JVC camera recorded onto an LG DVD recorder using a rewritable disc and imported into Videowave for editing. I have done this before in the past reading the video directly from the DVD drive in the computer and have not experienced any problems. This time the imported video always had black bars on the top and bottom and the video was stretched and looked distorted. The videowave project is 4:3 and the video is 4:3. I also coped the VOB file to my HD and renamed .mpg and imported into videowave with the same result. I also used the free program DVD patcher to ensure all the DVD data was set to 4:3 but that did not help. The video properties are 720 x 576 at 25 fps. In the end I had to abandon the project and use another editor. Is there a way to force the video to stretch to fill the frame in videowave?
