16:9 shooting and wrokflow w/xl2
on Nov 3, 2006 at 2:57:55 am

Hi,

I have an XL2. I can shoot 16:9, edit in FCP and render out a finished 16:9 master. It's letterboxed.

In my own ignorance, earlier, I think I shot 16:9 and managed to get full screen 16:9 (without letterboxing). Can anyone explain to me the shooting, importing, exporting workflow settings that will result in full screen 16:9 instead of letterbox? (or did I imagine this?)

Thanks,

Ty Ford

You bet. Capture your tape using FCP's DV NTSC Anamorphic setting. Make Sure your timeline is also set to the same thing. Do your edit and export your movie using the same codec: DV NTSC Anamorphic. If you've done it this way in the past but somehow finished up with a letterboxed 16:9 instead of full screen 16:9, it wasn't anything you did wrong in FCP but something that changed after the fact. Since you didn't say what you're doing with your master after FCP I'll stop at this point for now. If you're putting it on a DVD I can offer more info once I know more about your final output/media.

Go to the browser window (where the clips which you are using in the timeline are stored) and highlight each clip individually. Then Control-Click on the clip to invoke the contextual menu and select "Item Properties". This will allow you to review the settings for the clip you highlighted. Check to see that "Anamorphic" is selected. If it is not, check it.

Next, do the same thing with your master sequence. Highlight your master sequence in the Browser Window. Control-click on it to invoke the contextual menu and select "Item Properties". Check to see that "Anamorphic" is selected. If it is not, check it.

If your sequence output is all convoluted and nothing seems to work, you can always try copying the clips (make sure you selected "Anamorphic" for each clip) in the sequence, creating a new "Anamorphic" sequence and then pasting those clips into that new Anamorphic sequence.

Please do let us know how you make out, ok?
