720 X 404 clips?
on Nov 7, 2012 at 1:20:14 pm

I'm downloading some client MP4 videos. When I convert them in MPEG stream clip it's telling me the unscaled size is 720 X 404. I'm editing this in a 720 X 480 sequence. I converted them to pro res 422 When I drop them into my sequence they don't play. Get the yellow unrendered line. Can someone advise me here Thanks.

Open the clips with QT and have a look to the picture size (Cmd-I).

Set your RT for "Unlimited RT".

FCP uses standard resolutions, and 720x404 isn't one of them. You'll have to render some place along the line: when making the clips 720x480 in MPEG Streamclip or after stretching the vertical scale a bit in FCP.
There's also a third alternative: the clips may not actually be 4x3, and that there should be a little bit of black at the top & bottom of the frame. If that isn't the case, somebody messed up when posting the clips for you to download.

Yes. As david said.
The picture is 720x404 that means that has been converted to Square pixels to be properly displayed as 16x9 (Proper 16x9 would be 720x405, but the "405" is a bad number for compressing).
When you import the stuff to FC, check Squared pixels in the Browser.
