This happens when dimension of image/video (on which Videomerge/green key is applied) is not proportional to the dimensions of the Project Settings. There are couple of workarounds to git rid of those unwanted black portions. First is to apply Crop effect on that clip and move Left and right sliders under parameters. Other method is you can apply 4-point garbage matte effect and adjust the corners to completely get rid of those portions.
