distortion after QT export
on Feb 29, 2012 at 1:49:18 pm

My video looks normal when in FCP, but when I export it, it becomes squished/squat (slightly wider than the FCP version).

I have tried myriad variations on the settings. FCP says the sequence is 1920x1080, with an aspect ratio of HDTV 1080i (16x9) and a PIXEL aspect ratio of NTSC - CCIR601 (720x480). The sequence properties say it has square pixels (which I presume would make sense... is the NTSC aspect ratio square? Or is this conflicting information?)

Anyway, the way it looks in FCP is how I want it to look; the way it looks after export is squished.

I have tried exporting with the current settings, and with a variety of different settings. When I made it 720x480, it was also distorted, just in the other direction (more tall than wide).

Background on the project:

-shot on a DSLR, HD 1920x1080, 24 fps. The files were H.264.

-converted all the files to Apple ProRes (HQ).

-edited the project in FCP 7 with the ProRes versions.

I feel like there is something I am missing. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
