Narrow vertical black bars on both sides of video on export
on Jan 31, 2011 at 7:52:46 pm

Hi,

I've recently made the switch from Premiere CS3 to CS5. I've just finished editing a 1920x1080 project and I want to export to MPEG2-DVD as a widescreen DVD to burn later in Encore.

Problem is, when I'm in the Export Settings, I'm getting narrow vertical black bars on both sides of the video. This never happened in CS3. I've searched around the internet, and others seem to have had this problem although I haven't found a solution.

Any help would be appreciated.

Premiere has adjusted PAR settings to a more precise number starting with CS4, which adds those bars on the side when exporting to non square pixels. That's really the only way to not stretch your footage in the conversion process.

They do fall within the production frame, and would not be displayed on a TV, but they do show up on computer playback.

The solution is to crop your footage in the export window, 8 px for top and 8 px for bottom.

Hi Vince,

Thanks for the clarification on that.

The crop setting however is grayed out so I can't change it. Is there any other work around? I really need those bars not to be there.

Mike

Make sure you hit that crop icon first :-)

Hi everyone, sorry to interrupt someone else's thread, but I have a problem with the solution shown above.

When I crop an export, the cropped part is exported as black pixels, like black bars, instead of changing the document's size.

I don't understand the purpose of the cropping tool if it only blackens the pixel instead of cropping them.

There is an option called "Crop setting", and the third option "change output size" seems to be the solution. Only one problem: this option is always greyed out.

I'm exporting 1080p footage, I wanted to crop the export to make a wider output, without black horizontal bars. I'm exporting in h264. Tried some other and the same problem shows.

Any suggestions ?
