Hi Lars,

Thanks for the reply. Even though I may not have made my situation completely clear, I think that your answer may still be on track.

As far as we can tell, the problem lies in the new Quicktime 7.1. Prior to the update it would recognize 720p DVCPROHD files as 1280 by 720 format, after the 7.1 update, it is recognizing them as 960 by 720 format. FCP takes this QT interpretation as it imports the files (without rerender) for placement in sequence. I assume that this is simply a matter of the new QT recognizing the anamorphic dimensions, but not accounting for the 16:9 stretch.

Despite this strange QT interpretation of the files, the files are still playing fine and view fine as 1280 by 720, and import into Shake as standard 1280 by 720. We have decided to ignore the strange labeling as it does not seem to affect the files or the output in any way.

I hope that this makes sense, and I do very much appreciate your reply.

Best Wishes,
cP
