Church Street Marketplace, Burlington, Vermont USA ā€¢ Another shot in my Burlington Neon Survey; this one shows a modern USED BOOKS sign in red, surrounded by a white round-corned rectangle.

Question by : How To Remove Black Borders in Final Rendering of Sony Vegas 9?
Every time I render a movie in highest 720p HD I end up with black borders on the side. I’ve seen many other without black borders, and I’ve tried tutorials but they haven’t helped.

If someone could give me either step by step instructions or a video tutorial that works, ill award 10 points.

Best answer:

Answer by Zap
When you render the video, theres an option at the bottom of the render window that says: Stretch video to fill output frame size(Do not letterbox)
Check that box. This will take away the black boarder.
If you still have trouble you can email me and I’ll make you a tutorial :)

Question by : What kind of book stores will allow book signings of self published books?
I don’t know of any book stores that will permit book signings of self published books. I’m assuming borders and barnes and noble won’t because they only want to sell traditionally published books. So if I want to arrange a book signing, whom should I arrange it with? My book is an urban fantasy (it’s a real world and no mythical creatures. The only fantasy element is magic). I need good answers please.

You could try a local independent? You’re right, none of the big chains will touch self-published books. They’ve simply seen so many really bad ones.

To be honest, though, who are you expecting to come? Most self-published books sell zero copies to anyone who the author doesn’t know personally. You don’t need a book signing to sign copies for your family and friends.

Question by : Is there a website or app that you can read books online for free?
I still have to do summer reading. We only have to read 2 books this summer, (I have already finished one.) and I have to read the book “Chasing Redbird.” Do you know of any websites that you can read online. If you don’t, is there an app on an ipod touch 4 that you can read books online for free. By the way, I don’t have a nook or kindle. Thanks.
