I have some difficulties monitoring 720p25 material in Final Cut Pro. When I select the "720p50 10 Bit" preview option I get a picture on my TFT, but it's not fullscreen - only something around 50% of the screen. I can select the "1080i25 - 10 Bit" option to get a fullscreen preview...but that confuses me somehow. What am I missing here?
Sounds like your monitor is in Pixel Mapping 1:1 mode. So you're seeing 720p at actual size inside a 1080 display. We have that same feature on our FSI's.
Switch out of that mode to see it full screen
