I never messed with video much until I got Muvizu, and now I'm encountering some things that I suspect others with more video experience will surely know how to solve...

For example: I notice that some of the motion AVIs that I've collected to use as backdrop textures have a black band at the top and bottom. Is there a way to process these snippets to get rid of that?

Yeah, I hate when they do that. You have to 'zoom in' closer in your video editor till you fill the frame (and can't see the bars anymore) and then re-export them as videos. There's no way within Muvizu to correct the pan/crop view of the video.

thank you! I really appreciate that you took time to respond!

This must have something to do with aspect ratio, since I used screen capture software to get a lot of these textures, and the capture area was not a match for any of the standard ratios.. so apparently the remaining area gets filled with black in order to flesh out the standard dimensions.

If that's true, then I'm guessing when I re-size my view to eliminate the bars, I should also take care to ensure that the size of my window is true 3/4 ratio. Does that sound right?

Yeah, as long as you hide the bars it's not that important how Aspect ratios can be a real pain when using other peoples footage, but as long as you remember to compensate at the 'source' stage you shouldn't have too much trouble.
