FCP7 - distortion in viewer, clear in canvas?

Weird problem I never quite encountered before.

Just imported HD video freom my camera directly into FCP 7 (Apple ProRes 422, Linear PCM, 1920 x 1080).

After loading all the clips into my browser, I double clicked on one of them to load it into my viewer. The picture was completely distorted, but the sound was perfect. I tried this with all the clips -- same thing -- distorted picture in the viewer.

On a whim, I dragged one clip into my timeline, rendered it, and played it -- perfect picture in the canvas! Same thing with all my clips.


Is there some kind of rendering I have to do for these clips to show properly in my viewer?

Go to the Browser and make sure that your footage is;
- 1920 x 1080 SQUARED PIXELS
- 1440 x 1080 HD pixels.

Then fix your sequence setting, or are you trying to edit 4x3 Letterboxed?
