I record in 720p and so there are black bars on the sides of the screen, and its kinda annoying, but then when I export it and upload it to youtube it makes the video super small in fullscreen and then the whole video is surrounded in black bars, how can I change the width and height so that it won't do this?

So are you screen capturing or recording something with a camera? It sounds like you're screen capturing. If that's the case, what is the actual resolution you're capturing at? Is it exactly 1280x720? If so, is that the exact resolution of the content you're capturing as well? To me, this sounds more like a capture issue.

Hi there,

I understand you are getting black bars(letter boxing) during playback and after export. 

As the expert mentioned above, it may happen if there is a difference in the resolution of original and exported file.

Could you share a screenshot of the properties of the original file and your export settings?

We'll look into this.

Regards,

Shivangi

Your export settings are for standard def at 4:3 aspect ratio. Change the export settings to match your sequence and you should be fine. If you're wanting to export for YouTube, I'd recommend using h.264 rather than AVI.
