Distorted images in Final Cut Pro
on Oct 24, 2012 at 1:27:18 am

Ok Im sure its an easy fix... but why do my photoshop images always come into final cut studio distorted by -33?

I've dealt with having to manually un-distort them but this is doing my head in now!

Any help greatly appreciated.

PSD layered files - square pixels - same settings as the FCP sequence.

Thanks for reading!

Hi Ollie,
sounds like your File is anamorphic, or at least FCP thinks it is.
Right-click on the PSD in the bin, then item properties..., then format.
(Shortcut: Apple + 9)
Un-check the tick behind "Anamorphic", and voilla, no longer distorted.

Hey Jamie,
Thanks for your help but nope anamorphic isn't checked. I tried checking it but still is distorted. It only does this to PSD files. JPEGS come in ok.
Also when I update a PSD file if its not exactly the same size it distorts it again. I'm gathering this version of FCP just isn't very photoshop friendly?

Sorry, but it right now sounds like it's more likely to be your fault than FCP's. If you tell us how you save the photoshop documents -- especially pixel aspect ratio -- and the FCP sequence preset you use, we could give more informed advice.
