Image sizing problem
on Jun 27, 2011 at 4:51:50 am

Hello all! I'm trying to get a promotional picture to fit the entire screen of my video on youtube. Here's an example.

Hopefully someone here has some Final Cut knowledge as well. I have my project in Final Cut set up for 1280 x 720 Anamorphic aka 720p on Youtube. My image in photoshop is also 1280 x 720, yet when i bring the picture into Final Cut is gets distorted and squashed a bit and doesn't fit correctly? Does anyone know how I can make my photoshop image take up the full canvas in Final Cut without the black bars or picture distortion?

If your image is in photoshop 1280x720 and your sequence is a 1280x720 (Prores) should match the full screen without any black bars.

Anamorphic doesn't mean 16x9 - it means the pixels are shaped non square. If you have the anamorphic switch (or anything else other than square pixels) that would screw it up.
