convert mpg to mov using MPEG Streamclip
on Oct 18, 2014 at 5:48:21 am

I would have posted this under MPEG Streamclip instead of FCP but I didn't see any options for that.

I'm trying to convert .mpg 720X576 footage to .mov (same 720X576) to edit on FCP 7. I'm using MPEG Streamclip for this. Here's my problem:

The resulting video is squished horizontally with a couple of black bars on the sides. The video is still 720X576 and it's .mov, but it looks terrible.

Thanks!

Without knowing the specifics of the original file it's hard to comment but it sounds like it's anamorphic. In FCP and with the timeline active go to sequence settings and check the "Anaamorphic" tick box. Does it look OK now?

The original file is a 720 X 576 .mpg file. I'm using MPEG Streamclip to convert it to .mov (same 720 X 576). The result is a 720 X 576 .mov file where my original content is squished horizontally and there's a black bar on each side.
