Don't quite know how to describe the problem here as I'm new to Final Cut- and I'm on FCE which I know the Easy Set up deal can be... well, not so easy. Here's what I've done:
Captured Vid and Audio from BoinxTV to disc in AIC. The size there was 854 x 480.
I brought that into FCE with Easy Set Up on DV-NTSC Anamorphic. So, things look fine there.
I export using QT Conversion with size at 856 x 480, but it's squish in the finder(even though the finder tells me it's 856 wide, a quick screen measurment tells me it is around 720 x 480) BUT I upload it to blip.tv and all is well. it's not squished anymore.
So, I try using QT conv at NTSC 720 x 480 (16:9) and the settings box tells me the size is 720x480 (853 x 480) and in the finder all is well, but then things are squished at blip.
It's like I can't have it play back normally in both places??
I'm really confused. :-\ I'm new to this, and this community seems to be the most helpful with this stuff. Thanks for any feedback.
