Please remember that I live in PAL country and my mother tongue 
is not English: Does "letterboxed" mean black bars either left 
and right or above and below the actual image?
If yes, what is the difference between "apparent black bars" 
and "actual black bars"?
I think we can agree that the black bars do not help fieldmatch 
but take time to process and should therefore be removed as 
early in the process as possible.
