I have a video that consist of still images and video clips. When it transitions to a video clip there is a slight gap on the left and right side that doesnt appear in powerdirector. It only appears after producing the video. I have made videos in the past without this issues so I am not sure what is causing it.

Attached are two images, content had to be covered, but the important part is the slight gap at the edge in the one screenshot.

Any ideas or help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Hi video123 -

I'm not sure whether it's because you've "covered the content" in your screenshots, but I don't understand what your issue is. embarassed

You're saying that what appears is the produced file isn't what's seen in the preview screen when editing. Yes?

Your project is 16:9. Are the videos & pictures 16:9? or a mixture of aspect ratios? Are the images built into a slideshow template or is motion applied?

Whatever the "edge issue" is, does it only occur when the images are playing? or throughout the whole video?

Without revealing your content, you'll probably need to give some more information.

If you look at the edge issue image attached you can see a thin black gap on either side of the video clip that is not present when photos are on screen.

Correct, I do not see it in preview only when it is produced.

Your project is 16:9. Are the videos & pictures 16:9? or a mixture of aspect ratios? Are the images built into a slideshow template or is motion applied?

The images and videos should both be 16:9. The images are just inserted, see attached screenshot.

Whatever the "edge issue" is, does it only occur when the images are playing? or throughout the whole video?

Edge issue only occurs when a video clip is shown, not on static images.

Without revealing your content, you'll probably need to give some more information.

My initial thought was the bottom green box for the narrations, it extends past the photos/videos but i have used it the same way in the past without issue and tried various test to see if that is the cause but it doesn't seem to be.

Even with your clarifications it's had to understand what's right and what's wrong in your screenshots.

For example, I can clearly see that Correct Edge.png has an all green background but Edge Issue.png has video background. However, that screenshot is also 1990x1080 instead of 1920x1080, so there are 70 more pixels than on the Correct Edge image which throws off any direct comparison.

Maybe a better approach would be take a PD-generated screenshot of one frame from your timeline, and then another screenshot from VLC or Windows Media Player or Win10's Movies & TV app showing the same frame in the produced version. Blank out the content again but this time we should have a better 1:1 view of the differences.

You can also turn off Hardware Acceleration and produce without using Quick Sync or Hardware Video Encoder and see if that solves the issue.

I'd suggest the extra 70px on the left side of "Edge Issue.PNG" is a product of pasting the screenshot onto a white background then mis-cropping.

video123 - in the attached screenshot (cropped correctly) do the red arrows indicate the issue???
