Re: Full screen footage

This is the problem with your video editor.  It's set up as 4:3 and you imported 16:9 footage (widescreen).  So the only way it can accomodate is to shrink down your 16.9 footage, add black bars above and below and fit it into a 4:3 window.

 

This is what you're seeing.

Re: Full screen footage

This video was created with the GoPro mobile app. It defaults to 4:3. You need to change it to 16:9 BEFORE you start editing. The clips have been changed to 16:9 but the project is still in 4:3.
