Hi Steve, thanks for your reply!

In my case, FCP is NOT scaling my 720pN24 .MXF/DVCPro HD footage to 1280x720.

What FCP is doing in my case is converting my 720pN24 .MXF files/DVCPro HD footage to 960x720 .MOV files (as I can see when I Reveal the resultant Clips in the Finder), which are lacking some of the cropped-out edge imagery (as I can see in Finder, FCP and QT). So, scaling to 1280x720 is not the explanation in my circumstance - so the problem remains.

By the way, even if the footage WERE being scaled from 960x720 (1.33:1) to 1280x720 (1.77:1), that should only cause a cropping in one dimension (not both both a vertical crop AND a horizontal crop, as I'm seeing in my situation), right?

Finally, whatever the reason for the cropping, in no case is it "no problems, nothing to worry about" that FCP is cropping my footage. I don't want to be dealt footage to work with that is different than the way I chose to shoot it (does anyone?).

Thanks again,
