(black mirror) place on earth

Letterbox fail.

I'm making a video in Sony Vegas 8 right now, with clips I ripped from various seasons of a DVD, including deleted scenes. Unfortunately, while they're all mostly widescreen, I still get a bit of black on the side for some, and then black on the top/bottom for others, so keeps changing, and looks really stupid, so I'm wondering if there's a way to get rid of that? If I change the ratio or whatever, in the Event Pan/Crop, it either messes with the zooming I had set on the clip, or it just does that at the start, but zooms back out to give me the black, etc.

I hope that made sense!
