Resolution problem please advice!
on Sep 29, 2015 at 7:24:14 pm

Hi,

I have a footage that is shot and edited in 2K - 2048x1080

In the small view window its fine but when I full screen it it automatically adds 2 small black bars on the top and bottom which I assume is normal because probably my monitor is just a 1920x1080 monitor.

I exported the master as the original resolution 2048x1080 then converted the file to 1920x1080 with a software that i regularly use but in the end the 1920x1080 file still has the black bar. I'm wondering why this is?

Is there a way i can remove the black bars? Because I tried uploading it to youtube and in youtube I still see the black bar when I full screen it on my iPhone. I actually want a real full frame image when I full screen it..

I tried changing the project setting to 1920x1080 and yet it still has the black bar but weirdly when I click export master file the resolution is not following my project setting. It's 1920x1013 for some odd reason..


Please advice! Thanks and much appreciated.

You cannot "remove" the black bars. You can crop the video however.

How come? : ( Will cropping it lose quality?

Just load up the 2K originals and use the Spatial Conform to have it fill the frame:

2048x1080 is wider than 1920x1080 so you either have to crop off the sides to make it fit or you have to downscale it resulting in the black bars.


[Gareth Chan] " It's 1920x1013 for some odd reason.."

I think 1920x1013 is the image itself, not the image plus the top/bottom black bars (which would equal 1920x1080). Basically, FCP isn't encoding the black bars because it knows the player will add them if need be.

Just wondering is your target playback system that size of 2048x1080?

I have to ask this cause Ive had to create content with odd res for special displays and region settings on digital signage players.
