So basically, after upgrading to Snow Leopard (and in turn Quicktime X) I'm havign some very wierd aspect ratio issues in FCP.
So I have to make a showreel of previous projects of mine & after importing them into FCP 7 things aren't going right.
The films were all exported as PAL 16:9 QT files from FCP6, and when I open them in QT7 they look their normal 16:9 self... however upon opening them in Quicktime X they are stretched horizontally so that they are super widescreen, distorting the image in the process.
This wouldn't normally bother me as I can easily watch them on QT7
When importing those files into FCP7 they're having the same issue, showing up on the preview screens as this stretched super-widescreen image, which of course, I do not want.
I've looked in the video properties on QT7 (a feature stupidly missing from X) & adjusted them to be 16:9 dimensions, even after doing that, they still show up as super widescreen in QTX and FCP7.
[Does FCP7 use QTX as it's underlying video format like FCP6 used QT7?]
Please can anyone help me out on this? This showreel is due very soon as at the moment I can't even start since the files are such a weird aspect ratio.
