Hi, I have some footage shoot at 1280x720 I would like to transform it to Anamorphic to give a more cinematic look. when I create a new sequence of 1280x696 and drop the footage this show with black bars on the sides :S . What is the workflow to do this? I also want to be able to recompose (when is necessary) with the motion tab. Thanks
You'd want to edit natively in a 1280x720 sequence, then apply the widesreen matte filter and set it to 2.35-1. You'll able to slip each shot up or down inside the matte as needed to get the desired framing.

You started by choosing a complicated size.
"696" is not divisible by "4". May cause problems in the borders of your picture.
Why don't you go to 1280x640 (2x1) that is an standard film aspect ratio?

In the "Users Preferences" uncheck "Always scale clips to sequence size".
That's a "Basic Forum" question>
