Quicktime / FCP export to 16:9

I have been searching through these forums trying to find the answer to my problems (and failing). It is such a basic issue which I have (after four years of editing video) never figured out.

Exporting HD 1440x1080 to Quicktime, and ending up with a 16:9 picture.

I understand that this frame size is anamorphic, but every time I export it ends up 4x3.


Frame Size: 1440x1080
Pixels: HD 1440x1080
Field Dominance: None
Compressor: Apple Pro Res 422 HQ
Anamorphic is ticked


Apple Pro Res 422(HQ)
Quicktime Mov
1920x1080 (preserve aspect ratio is checked)

What am I doing wrong?!

Nothing. It's anamorphic as you said. It's for the display application to correctly display it. The question is really why you're exporting and where you're trying to get to. If the problem is in the QT player go to movie properties and set the Presentation aperture to Clean.

All the best,
