Black bars...

#1
Hey guys! Since I use Fraps, when I record, everything is going just fine but when I want to edit the video with Sony Vegas Pro 13, at the really end when I'm converting the project into a video, I can see black bars each side of the video. I checked! I don't see them while I edit but they appear when I'm converting the video! Is that due to Fraps or to Sony Vegas Pro or to my computer's settings. Because I don't really know. Can someone help me out? Thanks!

If you set Sony Vegas to edit/ render is a 16:9 aspect ratio, e.g. 1280x720 or 1920x1080, and if the video is at a 4:3 aspect ratio, e.g. 1024x768, then it will cause black bars on the video.

Here is an example screenshot of 16:9 vs 4:3

So what ever game you are playing, you have to make sure that it is in a resolution such as 1280x720, 1600x900, 1920x1080 etc...

When I'm editing a video, there's the resolution written under it. It's 1280 x 768 x 32. I always render as Internet 1980 x 1080 - 30P. I can't find my fraps resolution. What should I do?

To find the resolution of the video, find the video file then Right Click it, go to "Properties" then click the "Details" tab. In there it will tell you the resolution of it.

Also I think that 1280x768 is a 16:10 resolution which will cause black bars when editing into a 16:9 video. The lines wont be as drastic as 4:3 but they will still be there.
