I just finished my 30 day demo with Premier Pro. While it is a wonderful application, I can't really justify the cost right now.
I do however want to find something affordable that can change aspect ratios. I have a lot of footage in both 4:3 and 16:9. I prefer the final project in 16:9 letterbox so it can be widescreen even on a 4:3 TV. In Prem Pro it was a matter of changing the horizontal and or vertical scaling; then black bars would be added in to the rest.
Do any of you have editing software that can do this?? Thanks for any help.
