Hello. I recorded footage that was supposed to be 4:3 but accidentally became a 16:9 video. Now I want to fix this by using VideoPad to export the video to 4:3. The problem is, that VideoPad adds black bars to the top and bottom of the video. I assume that VideoPad does this so I maintain the aspect ratio. But I do not want to maintain the aspect ratio, I want to change it. (to 4:3) Cropping the image is no option, as important parts would be lost. To make it more clear with an example: 1. This would be the the original video file. It should be 4:3 (perfect squares) but is 16:9 (stretched squares) instead: 2. This is the video that I want VideoPad to export. The aspect ratio changed to 4:3 to remove the stretching and to get the perfect squares: 3. But this is the video that I actually get from video pad. Same unwanted aspect ratio, but with black bars added: What I do: I click on export, I manually insert the exact 4:3 resolution that I want. Then I get to choose: "Crop Edges" "Resize to Fit" "Cancel" I chose "Resize to Fit". Crop is no valid option. I get the same stretched visuals from the picture at 1., but with parts of the image missing on the left and the right: So please tell me that there is a way to actually change the aspect ratio of videos with your software. (And not just the resolution of the file, while the video stays the same, with black bars top+bottom or information missing left+right.) Re-recording the footage is not possible, and I don't think that I'm asking for sorcery.
