    Ronnie, it takes away the ability to place the layout over individual clips easily but you could create a single file when you have the video editing done and then bring that single clip in and use the layout tool once.

    Or, start a new sequence bring the first one in and then apply the layout tool.

    I think either way would work.

    My end product is usually 4X3 SD DVD. However, more and more clients are asking for their video in 16X9 SD. I am editing originally in 16X9 and then going back and using the layout tool on each clip individually and changing them to 4X3. I am careful to place the titles so that they do not require re positioning.
    Most of the time my video is 1 hour and 30 minutes long and to go back on each clip is really time consuming. Is there another way to do this?

    yes, and you can also fine tune vertical position in case you are chopping off heads

    and in case of 16:9 to 4:3, you can control horizontal position on a scene per scene basis so nobody is cut in half

    also, to avoid zooming too much and losing too much info, I stretch slightly, nobody will notice

    and yes, the layout tool is the one to use to do it all

    And if you ever want to go the other way '16:9 to 4:3'
    bring up the layout tool and click on 'Fit Height'

    This way you fill the screen and get rid of the black bars ,
    but lose some of the footage from the sides.

    Rt Click on the clip or hit F7 to bring up the Layout tool. I can't remember all of the settings but click on Fit to Width.
