      I edit on Adobe Premiere 6.5 and was wondering how to squeeze your video footage into 16:9 from fullscreen. When I edit my footage at 16:9 and export it, a little of the video gets cut off when viewed on my television. I once read a forum somewhere that told someone how to squeeze the footage into 16:9 to put it onto a VHS, so that it fit on the screen. It wasn’t letterboxing it because it squeezed the footage and didn’t just put the lines on to look like it. If anyone can help me that would be great.

      Converting fullscreen to widescreen can be tricky until you know how to do it. I’ll try to explain but you will need to experiment with it.

      In the video fx folder (I’m not sure in which sub folder) is an fx called "Clip". Drag that filter onto your video clip. In your fx settings pallette, use the sliders to stretch the top and bottom of the picture. I think about 12% each. Yes, the top and bottom of the picture will get cut off. It will look distorted. Export your timeline as a 16:9 file. When you view the 16:9 file, it will be "true" 16:9. There will be black bars on a tv, but those bars are not part of the video. They are put there by the player.

      Before you ask, yes your gonna lose part of your picture. How else would you make a square picture rectangular without distorting it?

      Also, the filter may be "crop" instead of "clip". I also get those 2 mixed up. 1 will stretch the video while the other will mask it with color (black) bars like in letterboxing. Use the 1 that stretches.
