I am trying to edit my first video ever and am using Final Cut Pro, as imovie doesn't seem to do what I want it to do.

However, Final Cut Pro is chopping off the top and bottom sections of my video, which is not ideal. Is this normal, or is it something to do with my settings?

Thanks

I am using a Mac OS X version 10.7.2 and Final Cut Pro 7
The camera I used is Panasonic HDC-SD90

Depends. What is this footage you have? What camera did it come from?

How did you get the footage into FCP? What are your sequence settings?

Hi Shane,

The original footage went into imovie, then converted to Quicktime and then imported to FCP.

The Sequence settings are: Frame size 960 x 540. I've tried changing this but it doesn't solve the problem.

Thanks for your help.

AHA! iMovie. What codec did you capture as? Because iMovie is far from professional, and captures to formats that FCP doesn't support. FCP supports broadcast formats, and none of them are 960x540. But, iFrame, that iMovie captures to...is that size. Intended for capturing when the intent is output to the web. FCP doesn't support iFrame. Nor that pixel aspect ratio.

So I better go back to imovie.

Thanks for your help
