Final cut express exporting
on Feb 22, 2011 at 2:47:15 pm

My FCE is already set up (easy set up) as 16:9. I am currently using 'polaroid' template jpg's in an edit. However, when i go to export i use the options: so,i choose 16:9, h264 etc. However the exported movie then shows the footage and the jpg images look skewed. If i just choose the basic export quicktime mode the images are not skewed but poor quality footage, I have also tried the 'compressor native' option. Any help appreciated.

Thanks.

What are the exact item properties of your sequence? If you export to 16:9 you need to make sure the size is set correctly especially if you're working in an anamorphic sequence.

BTW there's a separate forum called Final Cut Basics for FCE.

The item properties of your sequence. Select the sequence in your browser and press Cmd-9. What does it say? It would also help to know the frame resolution of the JPEGs. Is this stills only in the project? Are they all the same frame resolution?

All the best,

This is not a video size. You should make the stills into a video size that matches your sequence if possible, What are the sequence item properties? I can't see your computer.

All the best,

Tom

If you select the sequence in the browser and press Cmd-9 it gives you the item properties for the sequence. You can also, if you're in the timeline, go to Sequence>Settings and see what it says there.

All the best,

Tom

Your sequence is 720x480 anamorphically squeezed. For display on the web or a computer, which do not understand anamorphic media, when you export you have to set the size to a widescreen aspect ratio like 853x480. Your images are taller than they are wide so you probably have some pillarboxing in the canvas, black on the left and right. I'm not sure if you really need a widescreen project for these images, or whether you'd be better off with 4:3.

All the best,

Tom

It's set up right if you want a widescreen output.
