Possible to create a 3840x1080 sequence?
on Jan 17, 2013 at 10:12:13 pm

New to FCPx from FCP6. I want to create a sequence that is 3840x1080 (PR422). FCP6 couldn't export it so I'm looking at the FCPx demo, but I'm not seeing an option to create a custom-sized sequence. Am I missing it?

thx

Nope, not possible at this time.

Use AfterEffects.

By default, a compound clip takes on the properties of the first clip you add so if you drop in a clip with the right dimensions, you should be set to go. If you need to, create the custom sized clip in motion or AE then import into FCPX.

I probably haven't explained it all that well but a quick search here or Google should bring up any number of how-to posts.

Jeff

FCP has always rejected frame size rasters and frame rates that did not conform to SMPTE for vid output, in my experience it has not changed in FCPX.

This user is trying to do a mulit screen layout ( a guess ) and the limit as always been those fixed rasters.

Ok - maybe I had the wrong impression from the various posts I've read (I've only actually done it one myself) but I though we had examples of vertical formats, odd resolutions, etc.

So it's an output issue? Just did a quick test and I'm editing on a 3840x1080 timeline so that bit works... but FCPX Share options won't let me output anything but 1920x1080... don't have compressor installed on this iMac so I couldn't test if sending to Compressor would render the full resolution.

...or have completely missed what the OP was trying to do?

That's why I suggested AE. The physical output limitation is different than delivering verticals, there are fixed limitations in FCP and Avid that limit the files and formats that can be used.

Why have to force a tool to do a job it was not intended to do? AE is designed for this type of layout and deliverable and is what most multiscreen designers I know use to create presentations.

the other option, though a bit harder IMHO would be Motion.

Gary's right on with his guess. I want to build a movie for multi-screen presentation. It's essentially two 1080p clips side-by-side in one so that they stay synchronized across two screens. AE's not my thing but I'll take a look (I have CS5 somewhere around here).

thx!

Maybe this tutorial:

can solve the problem , evidently if you can do it in AE, you can also in motion...

I used the tutorial mentioned above last february just fine for making videos with a resolution on 11.000 on 4000 pixels.

So don't worry. It works, just follow the tutorial! Yes, you will get to EXPORT a file with the same size, unless newer 10.0.6 and 10.0.7 updates have changed the behaviour. (I only worked with the method last february, when it was 10.0.3, and it worked perfectly).

That being said, just having custom resolutions in FCPX is on my wish list just to avoid having to do the workaround.

It work with FCP X 10.0.6, I did a test. I import a photo 4608 x 3456, open in timeline, give some zoom in and export in same size as the photo 4608 x 3456.

Watch the tutorial and tried yourself .
