Firstly thanks in advance, im a long term lurker, first time poster.
I've been tasked with ingesting archive footage from DVCPro onto a shared media server in a news room. All the clips ingested are 16:9 and display correctly in Avid Media Composer. When I export the clips either themselves or as sequences they display correctly in quicktime. They have been exported at IMX50 as thats the format the broadcaster uses.
However when I re-import the clip it becomes letterboxed ('squeezed') with black bands top and bottom. I know this can be 'fixed' using Image>resize etc, but in a news room this takes time that cant always be given, surely the clip should import as a normal 16:9 clip?
I tend to operate with FCP, its been a good 8 years from I used Avid in anger.
