I have some Pro Res HQ Clips that are 16×9. I have already created a 16×9 Project in FCPX but when I bring them into FCPX Project it thinks they are 4×3. (Black Bars down the side with the image Squashed on the x axis. There is a spatial conform box, that you can select but all this does is a linear scale up of the clip to fit a 16×9 time line. It doesn’t allow me to do a “anamorphic tick” like in FCP 7 anywhere that I can see in the interface.
I could do an X Scale transform on the clip to make it fit in the time line, 133% but I am assuming that would affect image quality.
