Compressor (FCPX) aspect ratio dysfunction
on Mar 11, 2016 at 7:19:29 pm

I am a FCPX editor and I rarely use Compressor other than its presets. A broadcast TV client sent me a Compressor “Droplet” to run my final FCPX edit through to meet their specs. The FCPX edit sequence is at the HD standard of 1920x1080i @29.97 fps. The droplet is a settings preset for Compressor. The problem I am having is this; although the aspect ratio of the preset is clearly entered in properly as 720x486, the file renders out 640x480. This Compressor preset settings are SD anamorphic as well. Why is it not rendering out at 720x486, and at 640x480 instead?
Thank you!

This is the FCP Classic or Legacy forum. Those of us stuck in the past on FCP 7 and earlier. You'll want this forum:

BTW, AMAMORPHIC means squeezed. So the 16:9 image is SQUEEZED into a 4:3 frame...thus why it's still 720x486. Full raster means unsqueezed. Thus Anamorphic HD is 1440x1080, and full raster is 1920x1080
