I am slowly getting the hang of this but the problem I have now is that when I render a project it renders the black canvas as well as the clip, so I wind up with a clip that is small and centered in the middle of a large black square. what am I doing wrong? Thanks

Sounds like you set up the project in a different format than your footage. Can you see black around your clip on the canvas, within the prgram?

You most likely have SD footage on an HD canvas. If you shot your footage in SD, make sure you use the appropriate settings.

Indeed, the role of the canvas is to show what exactly will be rendered. Any time you Render, the entire Canvas will be rendered for each frame within your set render area (between the In and Out frames). This is true of pretty much any video editing/effects application out there. It is important to set up your project at the resolution you intend to render to, and to make sure the canvas contains everything you want to see in the render exactly as you want to see it, and nothing else. Generally this means using the resolution of your footage, though in some cases you may be changing the scale of footage or images to match a certain resolution.

Thank you. You were (both replies) correct. I had shot in sd and had set up the program in hd. It's slow but I'm learning
