Scaling issues
on Nov 1, 2011 at 9:18:17 pm

You know I should know the answer to this but my mind is turning to mush right now and I can't keep it all straight.

I am trying to export an image sequence. I want it to be 16:9 when the image sequence is exported however the image is scaling to 4:3 after the image sequence is exported.

I know I have dealt with the problem before, pretty sure it is a problem with the way I imported the original footage. Here are some images of the situation. My brain quit on me for the day! Can someone help me with correcting the situation.

Select the portion of the clip you want. Export using QuickTime Conversion select Image sequence. Under options change from jpg to png.

What are your sequence settings? What codec are you using?

Hey Steve thanks for responding:

Below is an image of the 'item properties' for the sequence i was exporting and the sequence setting for default sequence the final cut sets up.

Shot on DVCproHD 1080i/30

I seem to feel it has something to do with the 'Anamorphic Check-Mark'.

Dustin, that image you exported IS 16x9.

See how the hand is stretched vertically?

thats anamorphic 16x9.

Because your image is anamorphic, you must force your image to look correct. Use Photoshop if you have it.

Alright: I ran into this problem last summer, I fixed it but I don't remember how I did it. Below are two sample images of the same frame, one has been squeezed the other is in the correct aspect ratio. I want to export an image sequence from FCP7 and get the TOP result. I just tried it with a blank canvas and a solid color and FCP7 did the same thing, so I don't think it is the actual video itself.

@Steve, Photoshop is an option but only if there is a way to Automate the job. There will be 800 or more frames, I am not going to scale each one by hand.

You will have to transcode your QT into a full raster (not squeezed) QT file, then export your frames and they too will not be squeezed.

Thanks DAVID! Resolved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is there a way to bypass the Trans-coding step in the future, during capture?

[Dustin Rosemark] "Thanks DAVID! Resolved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

You're very welcome.

[Dustin Rosemark] "Is there a way to bypass the Trans-coding step in the future, during capture?"

You have two options:

1) shoot a with a camera that shoots full raster

2) Capture via an I/O capture device (AJA, BM, Matrox) that will allow you to choose how you capture. Firewire is just a straight digital copy with no options.

Have you tried placing your footage in a full raster timeline (such as ProRes 1920x1080) and exporting via that timeline.
