Okay, I’m starting to edit videos, but I’mn having a problem setting up the aspect ratio and the dimensions when I first start. I use custom settings, editting mode “Video for Windows”, and set the aspect ratio to 320 x 240, but it says that the ratio is 6:5 (makes no sense), but I went through with it anyways. Then this happened:

So, the horizontal sides are cut off, which is weird. Anyone know the problem?
I experimented a little bit and got the sides to show up after I set the ratio to 360 x 240 (which is 4:3 by Adobe’s standards, apparently; also, everything else in that screenshot stays the same except for the aspect ratio and dimensions part).

But even then, the video is different frm the original. How can I keep the original’s propoerties (ie size) when editting? For example, when I go full screen, the original covers everything, while the 360 x 240 version shows everything yet does not fill the whole screen and the 320 x 240 version fills the whole vertical area and just has the sides cut off.
So, I guess these are the main questions:
Does anyone know the problem when I use the 320 x 240 settings?
 Should I just use the 360 x 240 instead? But the problem in this lies in the fact that the main video gets shrunken a bit.[/LIST]
