comment Video clip is smaller dimensions than project. How to change the color of extra space?
Of course. The only way I could make this work was to put the "background" clip (a video loop) above the other clip, and mask that clip. I then put generators of the same color as the background of the smaller clip (the clip with the content) to either side of it to make it work. The effect works, though it's less than ideal.

I tried using a color generator, but it didn't work with the masking. Whether the generator was above or below the clip didn't make a difference, because the black bars were still present.

@filzilla, I ended up going with your advice of finding a different way to mask and putting the "background" layer on top. If you write that as an answer, I'll mark it as the response. :)

Sorry, not trying to change the size of the project itself (though that was enlightening advice), but I'm trying to figure out how to change the "matte" (or whatever those black bars to either side of a clip are called), when the clip is smaller than the project.
