I've just downloaded Hitfilm Express and was trying it out for a future video editing software for youtube movies. So, I import my file in hitfilm, I can edit it and everything looks fine, but when I suddenly try to export the movie it's putting black bars on the sides and squeezing my video to a 4:3 ratio. I have selected Youtube 1080 HD as my export preset. When I edit the movie it looks just fine (widescreen)
I've let hitfilm change the project so it will be ok with my movie and the setting in the project is:
Width 1440 pixels
Height: 1080 pixels
Fram rate: 25
Aspect Ratio: HD Anamorphic 1080 (1.33)
I have tried to change the project to 1920x1080 and Aspect Ration: Square Pixels (1.0) as well and pressed no when hitfilm wants to change it. As a said, It looks just fine when I'm editing the move. It is just in the export tab under preview it's squeezing my video and place the black bars at the side and then in the result video.
I have looked on the web and cant find a solution. Pls help
