Final Cut Pro :: How To Change Aspect Ratio Within Sequence


How do you change aspect ratio within a sequence? Here is my situation: I had to make two seperate sequences in a project and have been working from one specific source of video. The source is widescreen and somehow, my second sequence is mushing everything into a 4:3, how do I change that second sequence to 16:9 without having to re-edit? I am using compressor to export as an Mp2 with the Dolby audio, but that does not seem to expand it.

Final Cut Pro :: Aspect Ratio Changes In New Sequence?
I'm working with HD footage, and I have one sequence edited. When I open a new sequence and copy and paste from the first sequence to the new one, the aspect ratio of the footage changes, and I cannot get them the same unless i stretch everything out on the canvass, which is hit or miss.

How do I keep the ratio from changing?

If I drop the original clips in, they look fine, but the copying and pasting doesn't work.

Final Cut Pro :: Creating A Custom Sequence Aspect Ratio?
I am editing clips for cellphones. After many tests the most correct aspect ratio is Width-541 Height-722.

I am editing with stills and DVCPROHD 720/50P.

I drag the DVCPRO clips to the timeline and select "YES" to automatically adjust the sequence settings. Then I go to sequence settings and customize the aspect ratio to W-541 H-722.

THEN on my canvas the aspect ratio look totally wrong?... Then when i export a piece to QT H264 with my same aspect ratio used in the sequence, the aspect ratio comes out perfectly but my image is stretched.

I know there is a logical explanation but i just cant get it figured out.

Final Cut Pro :: How To Change Aspect Ratio
I just received a 3-camera interview show but one of the cameras (the one on the guest) has a different aspect ratio that the other two cameras. Every time the director cut to that camera, the guest looks "squeezed" His head is stretched!

The show is one 30 minute clip in the timeline. Can I cut each shot of the guest and "unsqueeze" it?

Final Cut Pro :: "Export Still Image Sequence" Changes Aspect Ratio?
Got HD media with 1440x1080 frame size and pixel aspect. Living in.....

A sequence of frame: HD 1440x1080 (16x9) pixel: HD 1440x1080

Now, I need to export this media as a Still Image Sequence.... however, when I do, the exported images are Squished in. Somehow the aspect ratio has changed. Now i've run into this before with video, and the solution was the "Preserve Aspect Ratio" in QT. But can't do that with still images. Been playing around with sequence settings, but I'm stumped.

Final Cut Pro :: Changing QT Aspect Ratio To 4:30?
I've changed the Sequence Settings on a FCP7 sequence to 640 x 480 Frame Size (NTSC 4:3), but when I export it out as a QuickTime Movie the aspect ratio is still 16:9.

I want the QT file to be 4:3 (more square-shaped -- not 16:9). What am I doing wrong?

Final Cut Pro :: Still Exporting At Wrong Aspect Ratio / What Is Going On?
I'm a full time editor, have done just about everything in final cut, have seen all the quirks but this is a new one I can't figure out. I just installed Final Cut Studio on a new macpro. I captured my footage, have been editing fine in 1920x1080, 24p. whenever I export a still, however, it crushes the image to 4:3. What is going on?

Final Cut Pro :: Movie Import Aspect Ratio
I have a Panasonic DV recorder and that is set to record in Widescreen format. When I import into iMovie 09 the image appears stretched and there are black bars across the top and bottom of the screen. I see where it is possible to set the aspect ratio for the final project, but how do I stop iMovie from altering the image as it is imported?

Final Cut Pro :: Shoot Footage In 4:3 Or 16:9 Aspect Ratio?
Years ago I shot a program for dvd which we are now trying to make a series out of. I am shooting new footage tomorrow and it just dawned on me. The first dvd was shot in 4:3 aspect ratio when there were no wide screen tvs. 4:3 was most popular. Now its about 55% 16:9 - (higher in Europe). But if I shoot in 16:9 tomorrow, it means, I wont be able to use any of the original footage, unless I letter box it which will cut off the tops and bottoms. Do I stick with 4:3 or go for 16:9? And if I go for 16:9, it means I will have to replace footage that I've already started editing for the new series?

Final Cut Pro :: 16:9 Aspect Ratio Distorts In Output?
I normally work in only 4:3 aspect ratio. I had to import and use all 16:9 footage today, so I created a new project, highlighted sequence, clicked "Sequence - Settings - and check marked the 16:9 anamorphic square". Canvas changed shape and fit the footage perfectly.

Went to export the file and it keeps squishing the footage so that it appears to be 4:3 ratio and people are skinny and tall with distortion when file is opened.

It is a 9 minute slideshow, so I was just using it in iDVD instead of normal DVD Studio Pro. I made sure iDVD settings were 16:9, but it appears to be the same problem no matter what I change in export setting.

Final Cut Pro :: Preserving Aspect Ratio 16:9 Of Video On Site
I've placed several Flash videos on a Web site, all 4:3 standard definition. All look fine. I have one video that's 16:9 widescreen high-definition. When I try to place it on the same site (using the same HTML snippet code as the others), much of the video is missing on the sides -- it's cropped off when I try to play it. I've changed some numbers around but nothing fixes it.

Final Cut Pro :: Using Aspect Ratio / Panasonic DVX100B, PhotoShop
I've been taking some [URL] classes on Final Cut so I could understand how to properly prepare and import still photos. It's going okay, but some of the tutorials disagree, or say different things. Go figure!

As I was working through those issues, I noticed that my current sequence under "Sequence Settings" was set to an aspect ratio of NTSC DV (3:2). This surprised me in that I would have expected NTSC 4:3. I know I set these at some point, but I don't recall why. Once again, sorry about the vague nature of my expression of concern. Can someone put me on the right track?

Final Cut Pro :: WMV File Not In Correct Aspect Ratio
I have a client that used red camera footage for most of her project but she has a few interview segments that are wmv files. Please keep in mind I'm working behind another editor, and the producer sent me the one file I could not find on the drive to sync up the project. When i tried to drop it in of course it would not work because it was a wmv file. So, I downloaded the flip 4 mac application so that I could view it in quicktime and import it into final cut. Now I've gotten the audio to sync up, but the video is small. I don't even know what aspect ratio it is. I need it to show up in the movie just like the other clips.

Final Cut Pro :: Quicktime X Playing - Exports In Wrong Aspect Ratio
I've noticed since upgrading to Snow Leopard, Quicktime X player is playing movies i've exported from FCP 6.0.3 in the wrong aspect ratio. 16:9 movies that were exported using Export => Quicktime Movie (before the Snow Leopard upgrade) are playing as 4:3 now ... If I open them with Quicktime 7, they play correctly though.
Quicktime X is playing other 16:9 videos correctly though, just not FCP exports.

Final Cut Pro :: HD Aspect Ratio - Video Exported With Letter Box
I am working on a music video in HD. The editor was working in a project and we thought we had all the proper settings but then when we tried to export the video, instead of rendering just the 16:9 frame, it was exporting it with a letter box. This was when we realized that our window in the canvas appears to be 4:3 with a letterbox. I tried starting a new project, and dragging the original HD footage into the timeline, as someone told me that Final Cut would automatically choose the proper aspect ratio forthe first piece of footage imported.

It did seem to work, the canvas in the new project is 16:9.So I copied the edit from the previous project, and pasted it onto the new one, but it arrived with the letter box and squished everything to fit the longer aspect ratio. My next notion was to change the settings on the old project to conform to the new one, but when I go through and compare the settings they look exactly the same. How can I get rid of the letter box without reconforming the entire edit?

Final Cut Pro :: Preserve 16:9 Aspect Ratio When Importing Footage Into FCP 4.5?
I hired a videographer to shoot an event for me, and I have the footage on my external hard drive. The footage has an aspect ratio of 16:9, and this is the way it appears when I open it in Quicktime. However, when I import the footage into FCP it appears in 4:3 ratio. How do I preserve the 16:9 aspect ratio when importing and exporting?

Final Cut Pro :: Shooting 1080p Wide On HMC150, Editing In SD And Aspect Ratio Forced On Exp
I am shooting with an HMC150 in 1080. I am then making an SD timeline so I can "zoom" to create other "cameras". I am then trying to export to DVDSP. I have tried many methods but each time, even when changing the aspect ratio in DVDSP, it forces a stretch on the video. Can I not just have a final SD DVD that has the typical black bars on bottom and top?

Final Cut / DVD Studio :: Aspect Ratio On Flat Screen TV
I have an issue with my burnt DVDs. When I load them I need to change the aspect ratio on the flat screen TV. It isn't ideal for clients to have to do that and I wanted to ask if there is anything I should be doing that's different. In DVDSP Preferences I have the following: In the General tab/Display mode/ 16:9 letterbox. Under the Encoding Tab I have, MPEG-2 SD/16:9. In DVDSP, I have the track set to 16:9 letterbox. My project is 1280 x 720 in FCP. It was shot in HDV, PAL. Please let me know if there's anything I'm doing wrong here in the DVDSP settings that may be affecting the aspect on the TV when my disc is loaded.

Final Cut / DVD Studio :: Movie Aspect Ratio Changed In Windows Media Player
So I made a DVD with DVD Studio Pro and it looks good in Apple's DVD Player, on an Insignia DVD player appliance and on Playstation 2. Both the movie and the deleted scene were 16:9 from camera to Final Cut Pro and they show that way in all these players. But on Windows Media Player for Windows XP, the program thinks the movie is 4:3 and the deleted scene is 16:9. Nero's Showtime has the same exact behavior, but at least you can force aspect ratio on Nero.

Besides being longer, the movie is different from the deleted scene in that the movie was originally out of Final Cut Express on an older Mac and it was encoded big endian. The deleted scene was output from Final Cut Pro and encoded little endian. I didn't think it would make a difference, but I tried outputting the movie from Final Cut Pro on the newer Mac and it did come out little endian. I took that into DVD Studio Pro, got rid of the old VIDEO_TS folder and re-built the project, burnt a new DVD. Then I went back to Windows and.

Final Cut Pro :: 60i With A 16:9 Ratio Footage On DV NTSC 48 KHz Anamorphic Sequence?
So I have a whole bunch of footage that I shot on the Canon XL at 60i with a 16:9 ratio. When setting up my FCP Project I set my Sequence and Capture Preset to DV NTSC 48 KHz Anamorphic.

I went ahead and batch captured my footage without a problem, however when I drop clips into the Sequence they seem to run a three frame loop. Can someone tell me why this is happening? Did I have my presets wrong for my type of footage or is it a different problem that won't require me to capture all my footage again.

Final Cut Pro :: Sequence Framerate Change
Ive got a short film edited in a sequence where all clips are DV NTSC 720x480 29.97 fps.

But my own stupidity, i originally converted these clips to a wrong format, i need DV PAL 720x576 25 fps instead of the ones i have now in my FCP sequence.

Ive got the clips converted as a copy in another folder but the problem is that now i have an edited sequence in FCP that uses the clips with the wrong format, it is a long edit, there are a lot of transitions.

Is it possible to somehow replace all the clips from my FCP sequence with the correct (DV PAL 25 fps ones) and tell final cut pro to change the sequence settings to correspond with the new format clips?

Final Cut Pro :: How To Change Sequence Setting After Done Editing
I just finish editing one of my video project. Unfortunately, just found out the sequence I was working with was in wrong settings. I tried to change aspect ratio from HD1440 *1080 to HDTV 1080i (16:9). However, after I changed the setting, my footage got all stretched out. Is there someway I can still change my sequence to HDTV 1080i without distorting it? Or do I have to re-edit everything with a new sequence, which I will hate it.

Final Cut Pro :: Change Settings After Sequence Composed?
I have an XDCAM Project with 1920x1080 60i video. I created a sequence in error set to DV 720x480. I added numerous clips, edited in timeline, etc. Evidently I mistakenly gave the wrong answer when FCP offered to change the sequence to match the clip, so now I have a downres'ed sequence which looks terrible when I send it to compressor.

I tried changing the settings of the sequence to the XDCAM 1920x1080i 60i setting, but it then made the clip look much smaller in the canvas window, and this persisted through sending to compressor. Is there a way to fix this without starting over so that the sequence can use my edits and preserve the full resolution of the clips?
