I am using Adobe Premiere Elements to edit my films, and I use EffectsLab to add and process gradients. I save as .avi. When I import the project back into Premiere Elements it is no longer widescreen.

What can I do to fix this problem? I have tried all of the options.

Thanks!

In Elements, set the pixel aspect to widescreen. Premiere is just displaying the rendered footage incorrectly.

Also, what codec are you rendering to, in the AVI?

I've tried the DV and .mov and both render standard. I am using version 1.005.100 and just downloaded the 1.005.100.21st Dec 2009, but haven't installed it yet since it seems to be the same as the original version that I have installed.

Hang on, can you explain that a bit more? DV is a codec, but .mov is a format, so I'm unsure of what you are saying. What codec(s) did you try in AVI, and what codec(s) did you try in .mov. I should also check what resolution the footage is in.

However, regardless, correcting the problem really is as simple as selecting the correct pixel aspect ratio in Premiere.

I used the Cinepack codec by Radius, and DV video codec. The footage is 16x9 widescreen shot with Canon HV40. When I get properties for the raw footage in Premiere it's 1.2 and when it comes out of Effectslab the ratio is 0.9. I have tried to change the ratio back to 1.2 in Premiere Elements, but can't find any way to do it.
