    Howdy,
    I have some video I captured from a DV tape. I can only capture the video at 720x480. I am laying out my video in Adobe Premiere 6.0. I am trying to shrink the resolution down, but when I do it always gets distorted. I have tried 360x240... which is till in the same ratio... yet it gets all distorted when it plays back.

    The final video is going to be placed in Flash, so my ultimate goal would be 400x300. Does anyone have any insights they can share with me? I can't figure out how to do it right.

    Thanks,
    computerpain

    Howdy,
    I figured out why the video look so distorted when I exported it. I had a movie clip in Adobe Premiere that I stretched out so that the shorter clip was played over a longer time. That is what was causing the distortion, not that it did not fit the 4:3 ratio.

    I exported my video successfully at 396x264. That is 55% of the original size. I tweaked some more settings and it really looked great.

    Hope this can help anyone else with the same question.
