I have an unenviable problem. Essentially, SD zoom to remove the letterbox for 16:9 output.
The source is a DV timeline in FCP. I've got an ioHD, a DSR-11, and an Ampex CVR-75 (same as BVW-75). Working on a current MacPro.
Is there some way to do a decent job of this with the gear I've got? I've tried to run the source out to Beta and upconvert while re-ingesting, but the results aren't what I was hoping for. I don't expect that scaling in FinalCut will look any better.
