    Black spaces above and below video

    I think I must have my settings wrong as my latest video had wide black lines above and below the picture.

    Not sure how to fix this in settings - help!!

    That would happen if the project setting for Aspect was Standard (4:3) and Widescreen (16:9) video was on the timeline.

    Yes.

    To change the aspect ratio of a project, click the cog wheel icon top left of timeline.

    Are you still using S12?   In the project preferences there are the choices for setting the project format of 'Set from first clip added to project' and 'Use this format for new projects'. If setting from first clip, that first clip must not be a photo or a video not to the same format as the required project. It is possible that you had the project format set as 'Use this format for new projects'. In the drop down list, PAL Standard is 4:3 (so is NTSC Standard).

    Unfortunately, once a project has been started, it is not possible to change the project format. Your only choice is to start again after selecting the correct format (or buying Studio 19).
