We shot some RED stuff in 5K anamorphic. When put into Final Cut Pro X the footage came in squeezed 4X3. To fix this, I simply upped the X slider in the scale parameter to 194%. When previewing the footage on Red Player with the anamorphic view turned on - there are black bars on the top and bottom - this is not so when viewing it in FCP X with the x slider scaled to 194%. Just checking - was this the correct way to do this? Or is there a better workflow?
Did you ever get this answered? I am working on 5k Anamorphic footage right now (3296x2700) and also appears 4x3 on my FCP-X time line. Tried to import a custom timeline with the correct resolution but the footage itself was still 4x3.
I need help with this. I don't know if stretching out the footage is the answer and how does that metadata export out to Resolve? (for a round trip)
Everything happens for a reason. You are where you're supposed to be. Although I wish was somewhere else sometimes.
