Ok this is really strange , im an experienced FCP user, But im confused. On my home system when I export a Standard def project the current dimensions are around 720 by 480 but when I go to do it on my laptop the current dimensions are 424x318 , I NEVER set anything to those dimensions. This is really , really frustrating and confusing , I just want it to go back to normal. Please help,
The settings are set to 720x480, but It exports it at 720x480(680x480). I just want it at 720x480. Further more I have no idea why it claims the current dimensions are 424x318. Even when I got to export just a QuickTime movie it makes it the wrong size. All the clips were imported correctly. The sequence settings are at 720x480 3:2 NTSC dv, when I change it to 4:3 it makes the dimensions 680x480 , I just want it at 720x480 so it doesn't look so square when I upload it to YouTube or vimeo
What pixel aspect ratio is your sequence set to? Have you tried opening a new sequence, setting the parameters to sq pixels and 720X480, then pasting the sequence and adjusting the aspect ration in your Basic Motion tab?
