Hi, I have problem with my video, not turning out the way I want.
I have a video, captured with my mobile phone, 1280 x 720 (widescreen).
I want "Widescreen black bars"on the top and bottom.
Whenever I do this (by pushing the crop tool) it looks great in Sony Vegas.
But when I look closer on the output movie/or upload it on youtube, 
I just end up with black bars, vertical as well! 
So thick bars (top & bottom), + some smaller black bars on the sides (vertical).
Other than that my settings are:
Template: HDV 720-30p (1280x720; 29,970 fps) 32 bit (full range)
Video event: Only "loop" and "disable resample" are marked.
Rendering as: 6mbs HD 720-30p Video
