    I shot some video in 16:9 with a Panasonic HMC40 and when I try to place an image on the green screen the image goes BEHIND the video, (where the black bars are or where the 4:3 video would fill) I swear there's a step I'm not doing I used 4:1:1 smoother and applied the key.

    I'll try to get a screen shot, where you can point out my horrible skills at post production. I wish I could just stay in the studio.

    I'm trying to understand what you're talking about. The key should turn your green screen areas black as well, then when you composite the two video tracks ( with video track that was keyed being V2 and what you want to show through being V1 ) it will show through any area including anything where there's no video but defined canvas space.

    Are your sequence settings correct for 16:9?

    So when you change your Chroma key filter display mode to "matte", what do you see?
