Auto resizing? in FCP7
on Jun 21, 2010 at 9:44:34 am


I am working in a 720x576 (non square pixels) project timeline to finally master a PAL- SD 16 x 9 project. I import a 720x576 (non square pixels) .PSD, Open it (as a sequence) and all looks fine.

However if I create a new sequence then copy a layer or two from the previous PSD sequence and paste (it or them) into the new sequence that I have just created, that new sequence then appears to take on the aspect ratio of the largest layer and scale said PSD layers to fill the frame.

I have searched and checked and read, now I am really confused.
It's not that difficult is it? This is driving me nuts, what am I missing here? All I want to do is to continue working in the same frame size and aspect ratio as my timeline and graphics.

Please FCP gurus, enlighten me

Select the clip and left-click "Remove attributes: Basic Motion & Distort.
See if its helps.

Of course, it worked! Thanks again Rafael,
I wonder is there anywhere I can "turn off" this auto scale and distort such that I can simply work in my chosen project size?

Sure; you can disable the option; Users Preferences> Editing tab, lower right.
