What happens when you reset Zoom X and Zoom Y?

Is this a Composite capture device or HDMI?

What are you camera output settings?

Let me guess - that "SMI Grabber" is an analogue capture device, and what you're seeing is fact that the active line width in traditional PAL/NTSC video is less than the total line width that is captured (eg 720x576 for PAL). Some cameras fill the entire line with picture content, some don't. Consumer cameras often do, and broadcast cameras typically don't. This area at the edges is usually lost in the "overscan" area of a traditional CRT TV, but the way you're using it (as a source in vMix) you are going to see it. The easiest solution is to zoom in very slightly on the X axis (value >1) so that your active picture fills the width of the screen. To summarize, this is an issue caused by a combination of your camera and capture device - not an issue with vMix.

Thank you very much for the quick response. I appreciate each and everyone of you. Yes it an analogue capture card but is not the cause. I have been using it but it never happened.
I just installed this trail version to try it only to discover the black bars in my recorded videos. I equally use easycap HDMI capture card and its same result. it is not about capture/zoom or what. Because when you zoom it the value changes. I need a permanent and real solution to it.
Zooming to remove the black bars is not the solution. Please I need help before we can upgrade to this version. If not I will remain with Vmix 21 but I will be missing all the great features of Vmix 22

Once again thank you. Looking forward to hearing you soon.
