Mixed resolutions, ratios
on Jan 15, 2008 at 5:11:34 pm

OK, here is a good one:

I have a client who shot a bunch of HDV footage and mixed that with HD stock footage...all good so far. However the client then added a lot of 4x3 SD stock footage and does not like the pillars on the side of every 4x3 shot. What they want to do is make the sequence 4x3, letterbox the HD footage, and then I will match that letterbox on the 4x3 stuff so everything has the same letterbox.

My current sequence is an Easy Setup HDV, 16x9. How do I go about and accomplish the above mission? This is a new one for me on FCP. Thanks in advance.

You just need to scale up the 4 x 3 footage. Motion tab >scale or just drag the window in the canvas. You will loose about 30% though. You can then pan and scan it a bit by hand as the composition will probably be kuck.
