So, I think I discovered the issue. It's synchronized clips!

I dropped some 1080 animation codec clips into the 720 timeline, and when I changed spacial conform to "None" (with Scale at 100%), they grew in size to overfill the screen. When I set their scale to 66.67%, they fit the screen perfectly.

So, I imported some 1080 ProRes LT footage from another project into this project and voila, when spatial conform was set to "none," (and the scale at 100%) the clip grew beyond the size of the project boundaries.

So I thought it was an h.264 issue. So I transcoded the used project clips to ProRes422 and the timeline was still not adjusting. But I'm working with synchronized clips. So on a whim I dropped one of the original 1080 h.264 clips (non-synchronized) and it worked as expected.

So it was the Spatial Conform of the synchronized clips not working correctly when dropped in the timeline.

At least I know I'm not going crazy. :)
