Sounds like introduced more questions than I answered.

Some points...

If you have FC Studio installed, QuickTime Player 7 should detect it and unlock Quicktime Pro. You can check to see if you have Pro enabled by seeing if "Export" is greyed out. If it is, Pro is not enabled. I think without Pro, you also don't get to change anything in the Properties Pane. If you can, then maybe you do have Pro. Its been awhile since I have had to unlock Pro features on my system.

It appears that the image is not really cropped. The player you use for Quicktime crops it by default, but its non destructive.

Of course, no other Quicktime Players respect this setting....including Quicktime Player X. I believe it is possible to set this bit in a web embedded QT movie, but have not tried it. QuickTime Player X has much diminished functionality than QuickTime 7, so much so that Apple continued to recommend installing QT7 to all FCP users.

In short, its a limitation with Quicktime that Apple feels is a feature. If you can't live with it, you are going to have to export to something other than a Quicktime movie.
