Premiere capture problem/question/stumped!

OK.. this doesnt make sense to me...

through my XL-1's viewfinder and on tv (hooked to the XL-1), the movie looks fine but when i go to capture the footage into premiere, in the movie capture screen i see the corners of my wideangle lens..................... as well as a solid black line at the bottom of the screen?

is there something I can do to fix this?

This is normal. If you want more of a history on the problem here is a thread

When the server crashed in July (maybe this thread was the cause of all the heat) this thread was very active and a number of posts around the beginning of July were lost.

Several solutions are in the thread, but basically if your work is for VHS or DVD distribution your OK. Only web or DVE work will present a problem from the start.

One remark though... There used to be a time that it was general practice to set 10 to15% overscan (H&V) which masked vignetting, trace ringing, retrace curtains, black bars. component ageing...Since TV's got fully transitorised, got stabilized power supplies, and the transmissed signals got narrower specs, TV sets got overscans rather between 5 and 10% . For plasma, lcd... displays, the overscan (settable blanking) is estimated to need only 2%. So I would no be so happy with these artifacts if I want my footage to be viewed for the next 10 years without visible vignetting...
