Premiere 6.5 widescreen problem - can't get black bars, footage squeezed

Hi,

Yes, I know Premiere 6.5 is a blast from the past. But it's a program that I like to use, works well, many of us still use it and it's simple.

I have asked this before here and actually figured it out, but now I forgot! I'm sure someone will know how to do this (sorry, haven't checked in here for a while)..

I have some footage shot in widescreen (16x9) in 780x480 NTSC. When you export this footage it comes out at squeezed, unless I capture the video at widescreen (meaning the pixels) and I export it first at 854x480, put it back into Premiere and then render as DV 0.9 as a help file from Adobe said to do.

HOWEVER, I know I got the solution from here before. I can't remember what it was or how to do it. I did a search on all my posts here and the solutions presented don't work.

I seem to recall there may have been a 'transform' filter or something that I used? I can't remember.

So the question is, how do I take this 16x9 aspect footage, put it into premiere, and have it spit out a letterboxed 4x3 with the video content looking right?

Thanks.

If you just want a 720x480 4x3 0.9px aspect video with 16x9 video letterboxed inside, create a new project that is 4x3, import your video in, and scale it to fit in the 4x3 timeline.
