Some Proxy files do not fill Canvas and Viewer
on Sep 24, 2011 at 2:23:04 am

I am editing a 16mm short film with Final Cut Pro 7.0.3. From telecining we were given two Uncompressed 10 bit Quicktime files at 25fps, Upper field first, frame size 1920x1080.

Using Media Manager and the Recompress Media function I created two proxy files (Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy) 1920x1080, 25fps, Square Pixel aspect, no field dominance) keeping the original reel names.
I have been working with Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy) sequences that have a frame size of 1920x1080 (25fps, Square Pixel aspect, no field dominance).

During the editing process I noticed some vision in my sequence did not fill the entire screen (leaving a black border). I have double checked all my vision in the timeline is scaled at 100. The majority of clips are correct in appearance. Only some clips in my sequences are effected not the whole proxy reel.

How would I make all clips a uniform size?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Well I'm not sure why it would only be some clips, but you could try right clicking on a clip you know looks right, then copy. Then select the clips that are displaying incorrectly, right click and select paste attributes, and select scale? I forget what the exact label is but you seem pretty knowledgeable about FCP.

Hi Eric
Thanks for the tip. I tried that but it didn't have any effect.
Thanks for your help though

Hi Eric
All I had to do was select the incorrect clips. Right click -Remove Attributes
And remove Distort
Thanks for your advice!!
