    I use Sony Vegas movie studio 10 hd platinum to process my videos and am wondering why when I size my stills at 1280 x 720 I get black bars at the sides of the stills.

    It sounds like a simple aspect ratio problem. The video you're making is 16x9, whereas the stills you're trying to integrate are 3x2.

    Question...

    if the template for the video sizes it to 1280 x 720 and I crop the photo to 1280 x 720, shouldn't they appear the same size without the still having black bars on each side?
