No 16x9 display
on Apr 11, 2011 at 12:50:25 pm

I shot an interview in 16x9 HDV, captured it as such but the footage does not display in 16x9 in the viewer or canvas.

The sequence is set as an HDV sequence and I've even tried the conform to sequence function but everything is displaying as a 4x3 image.

This hasn't happened before and I'm at a loss.

Any suggestions? Thanks

in the browser, put a check in the Anamorphic column.

The anamophic checkbox is not for HD of any sort. It would only work properly if the material was down-converted to SD by the camera or deck when capturing, due to improper menu settings. I suspect that's the source of the issue in this case, and so checking the anamorphic box may display properly, but will cover up the real issue, which is that the material in FCP is now DV rather than HDV.

Thanks guys - this insignificant project will go out 4x3. I'm now shooting exclusively 16x9 HD using AVVCAM to ProRes, so for me, it's goodbye HDV, SD and 4x3 forever.

There are HD formats that are anamorphic.

[Chris Tompkins] "There are HD formats that are anamorphic."

But, as I said, the anamorphic checkbox comes in to play on none of them.

Anamorphic HD is completely driven by pixel shape, i.e. all full raster HD is square pixels, all anamorphic is non-square, and it's those pixels shapes that automatically change the display.
