Tom, you shouldn't need to adjust the motion settings, right click, choose "interpret footage" and adjust the pixel aspect ratio (i think) to "1.2" it might say 1.2 DV 16:9 or DV widescreen. That has the same effect but you don't need to do it by hand, and should also not need rendering in the timeline.

On the 4:3 TV it must be cropping off left and right of the frame in Pan and SCan mode- does it do this for all anamorphic DVDs? Either the DVD player is doing tis or the Elements DVD program is setting the DVD player to do this.

Dylan it is now working 100%..... does everything it should when it should. You have helped me learn so much too. Thanks.

You were right, when I set the 4:3 DVD player on "4:3 widescreen" the black bars came up. While in "4:3 pan-n-scan" even though the geometry was correct, there were no black bars. ...Yes, it was cropping the sides and top and bottom.

My oh my, what a relief.... I still think you must be a teacher.............. You have made my day!! Oh, by the way, I AM a retired teacher....

First, I am a retired teacher as well, well sometimes I think Im a retarded teacher.

I thank you for sharing all these problems and all the others for sharing their experience with you and this issue.

I purchased the same lens for my gl2 and will be doing the same things, I use elements more often than my premiere pro.

This will save me a huge amount of time!!!!!

thanks again

Thanks Dale, glad to know it helped out. I taught math for 30 years, how about you??
I'll be the first to admit, that at my age, some things in technology are a bit difficult. You fellows have sure helped, especially Dylan.

So, for the benefit of anyone else like me who has been or is going to be faced with this new, difficult, and different experience, here are the steps I learned to be successful with the 16:9 Adapter Lens. [Corrections and/or simplifications will be gladly accepted]

I'll write this in a way much like Chuck Engles and Steve Grisetti did in their excellent book: "Adobe Premiere Elements 2 in a Snap".

1. We assume that you have completed the video work using the 16:9 adapter lens attached to you camcorder, with the camera set to 4:3.

2. When you open PE, at the very first screen,you go into the setup and click on the + beside DV-NTSC. That will give you a dropdown and from that you highlite: Widescreen 48kHz., then click default.

3. Then go ahead as normal, select a place to save your project, capture your video and it will come up in the Media section.

4. Then click "edit" at the top and go down to and click on "interpret footage".
-----Second section down, you will see:
" Pixel Aspect Ratio "
----Select "conform to" and then select:
" D1/DV NTSC Widescreen 16:9 (1.2) "
5. Click : " OK "

6. When you finish your editing and title work, click on "CREATE DVD", and then click on "BURN DVD". this will open a screen and at the bottom, be sure and select:
NTSC Widescreen- Dolby DVD.

The results should be successful...... I hope this works for you too. Let us know.
Regards, Tom B.
