blackspace around a video

  tomleady 08:45 26 Jul 2006


I am testing some video editing software and so far I've found Premiere 2.0 to be the best for editing, however, exporting is proving to be a bother.

I have a clip - 320x240, 5 mins, good quality. I import it to the Premiere, put it on the timeline and snip and edit away, so I've cut it down to about 2 minutes.

now, in the video preview windows (top-right of my Premiere by default) there is a lot of black space around the video clip.

when I export it as a Adobe Media Encoder, the video file is 320x240 but my actual footage is much smaller, as there is a chunk of blackspace around the video.

do I have to stretch the video size in the preview window, to fit the box?

also, what would you say a suitable file size is for streaming a 2-min video?

either as a wmv or a .flv?

The Flash video encoder seems straightforward enough to use.

many thanks for any feedback :)
