Hi everyone, First time poster but a long time user of these forums. I have pretty much answered all of my questions by using this forum and I hope someone can help me out with this.

I received footage shot on a Panasonic AG-AC160 AVCCAM. I used Log and Transfer to bring it into Final Cut 7 from the SD Card and everything seemed to work well except there is a slight distortion on the imported footage. The shot is scaled up ever so slightly, but enough to make my subject look like I am shooting through a fish eye lens and to cut off about 1/3 of her forehead. I have matched up the imported footage to my raw footage and there is a noticeable difference.

The footage was shot 1080/60i. I didn't change any settings on the Log and Transfer screen and have never had this problem before.

For the record this is only my 3rd time transferring from an SD card and not tape so I'm not the most experienced when it comes to this. I'm sorry if this is a dumb question.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
