Importing Images To Fit Full Wireframe For Time Lapse in FCP7
on Apr 17, 2013 at 6:04:34 am

I am working on a Final Cut Pro project that includes 2 time lapses. I've decided to try importing the images directly into FCP as opposed to a single Quicktime video in order to preserve greater image quality, BUT I do not want to resize every images to fill the wireframe as I have over 1000 images. Is there a setting that will automatically size the images to fill the entire wire frame so I don't see black bars on either side of the still photo? OR is there a way that I should save my images before importing them that will make them the size of the complete wire frame? I tried importing an image with the width of 1920pixels, but it still came out with the black bars on either side.

My sequence is set at 1920x1080 HDTV 1080i (16:9), Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square. I did not choose these settings specifically, as I think that program chose whatever worked best with the 7D footage that I'm using.

Any information would be super helpful. Thank you in advance!

In the preferences, you need to uncheck "Scale clips to Sequence settings".
Pictures will come full size.
Then will fit or overflow the Canvas depending on the picture size.

Thank you for responding. I tried unchecking "Scale clips to Sequence settings" but photos are still importing with the letterbox. Essentially I'd like FCP to favor the width of the image, as opposed to the height, so that the sides reach the edges of the wireframe, even if some of the top and bottom of the image are cut off. I don't know if this is possible?

You could also select all in the time line and scale them to fit.

Make the changes to one. Copy the clip...paste the attributes to all the other clips.

Wonderful! I think that worked. Thank you so much for the suggestion!
