FCP 7 Copy and Paste Sequences -- video stretched or stills elongated
on Feb 3, 2014 at 11:01:24 pm

When I copy and paste a video sequence into another pre-existing sequence the video is stretched. If I open a NEW sequence and paste in another sequence the video came out normal and the stills were compressed (elongated).

Video Captured in: DVCPRO 50, 720P/24PN, shooting with a Panasonic HPX170P
Stills are all low res currently -- 800x593 RGB or 1179x 1653 RGB all JPEGs

AJA Kona LHi
Sequence Preset AJA Kona LHi: 720p 23.98 Apple ProRes 422
Capture Preset (same)
Video Playback AJA KonaLHi 720p59.94 8 Bit (1280x720)

Item Properties/Format of VIDEO:
23.98, 960 x 720; DVCPRO HD 720p60; data rate 5.9mb/sec; pixel aspect HD (960x720)

Item Properties/Format of STILLS:
23.98; 1179x1653 (various); Compressor Photo-JPEG; Pixel Aspect Square

Whoever might have a clue as to how to successfully paste a previous sequence into a current sequence would be so appreciated.

Do the sequence settings of BOTH sequences match? Sounds like one has different settings, like taking your 960x720 footage and putting it into a full raster 1280x1080, or 1920x1080 sequence.

Shane: Thanks for the reply. You're right. The sequence settings are different. So when I try and copy and paste a sequence that is frame size 1280x720 Aspect Ratio HDV 720 (16:9) Pixel Aspect Square INTO a sequence with the proper sequence setting for my project 960x720 HD (960x720) Pixel Aspect Ratio HD (960x720), I get the video stretching.

So what is the solution? If I try and change the Sequence Setting of the 1280x720 to 960x720, the video becomes 4x3. And if I copy and paste video from that changed sequence that is now 4:3 into my current, proper sequence 960x720, it too looks stretched. How do I change the sequence settings so the video is not stretched? Thanks so much. Really appreciate your help.

YOu need to adjust the DISTORTION of one clip (double click to load into Viewer, click on the MOTION tab, adjust distortion) until it looks right. Then copy that clip, and paste the attributes to the rest of the footage you brought over.
