I'm trying to crop and straighten clips that have had 2.35:1 aspect ratio applied to them through Matte>Widescreen effect. It seems that when I apply the effect to the clip, all it does it letterbox the original, not the new straightened/cropped version. Basically, I can't apply widescreen to anything other than the original clip without it looking distorted and crazy. Can't find anything else on the subject so any help would be appreciated.
