I have just finished shooting a short film with the Arri Alexa into the Prores 4444 codec.
I am using FCP 7 to edit but want to convert the footage into a more managable data size.
I have used the media manager in FCP to convert my 4444 files to a 422 Proxy. This worked well
enough but when it was done converting all the footage I realized that the aspect ratio was also
The new aspect ratio cuts out a lot of the frame that I would need to see in order to edit properly.
Is there a way to maintain the aspect ratio of the original 4444 files I shot in while still
being able to edit offline?
