1024x768 Camtasia to 720x480 (NTSC) FCP, then DVD
on Sep 30, 2011 at 4:22:49 pm

I was given 15fps, 1028x768 Camtasia's I exported them to MOV using the Animation Codec at 15fps, Millions of Colors, Best, Custom size 1024x768. I assume I'm doing the right thing since my export setting are the same as the source.

In FCP I bring in the .mov it looks OK, not awesome, but it's clear enough, with sequence settings of 720 by 480 NTSC DV 3:2. The whole screen is shown. When I go to Export QT Movie, not QT Conversion, it cuts off some of the sides. Any suggestions?

It looks clearer in FCP when I change the compression to 4:3 instead of 3:2. However, it still cuts off the sides when it is exported to QT Movie. I've been playing with the different export settings in Camtasia. It seems the odd size of 720by486 4:3 looks the best when taken into FCP. However, whenever I take it into FCP, it always tries to stick the 3:2 aspect on it when it looks the best in 4:3.
