Sounds like your images are larger than your canvas.

There are two solutions:

1. Use a larger canvas. You can change your canvas settings in the Canvas section. Either pick a larger size template that fits your needs, or choose 'As foreground' to set the canvas automatically to the same size as your image.

2. Reduce the scale of your image to fit the canvas. You can do this in the Position section.

If you are using a camcorder, then you have a different problem, as this forum is for PhotoKey, which can only work with still images. However, assuming you are using CompositeLab, which is the program you have registered, the solution is basically identical. Either make a project with a higher resolution, to match your footage, or reduce the scale of the footage so it fits your project.
