Problem with aspect ratio export issues!!!
on Jul 3, 2015 at 5:22:47 pm

I have a client that needs the following:

Export multiple images from photoshop that are 680x324
Import the images into FCP7 and animate them for advertisements
Export them in the same size (680x324) and have them no larger than 25mb

I create a custom size in FCP7 before I start adding clips (680x324) and start animating. When I export the file is either stretched out, or insanely low quality and blurry. And it NEVER matches up to the size in which I either imported the images as, or set the custom size settings to.

Have tried to export just as a QT using current sequence settings AND QT conversion with custom export size (680x324) No luck on both.

However - if I use the normal settings for FCP7 (apple prores 422 1920x1080) and edit with the photoshop images (680x324) the export comes out in 576x325 - NOT stretched and NOT blurry. But now there are letterboxes and its not quite the size I need. Please help.

unless you work with larger scale images, i wouldn't edit in HD, as you;re blowing the pics up, then shrinking them.

"I create a custom size in FCP7"
make sure the pixel aspect ratio is square.
