Best Way to Incorporate 4:3 Video into a 16:9 Project
QUESTION: I've been shooting in a 16 x 9 format for a short while now. Can I create a project that is 16 x 9 that I am able to add 4 x 3 clips to from some other, older videos I've shot?
ANSWER: The best thing to do if you're fine with the black bars (pillar-boxing of a 4:3 into a 16:9 project) is to import that 4:3 video into a project that is set to 4:3.
Then use Clipboard (found under Special button in Edit Menu) to bring that scene/s into the 16:9 project. Make sure to adjust the settings of the Clipboard to borders and not stretch or panorama
