Don't know why full screen view isn't working for you any more, but you might try deleting your preferences using digitial rebellion's preference manager.
How did you bring all the material in to fcp? That's probably the source of your problem with differing clip formats.
I recommend deciding on your target setting and converting the material that does not match using compressor. FCP will usually not do a good job of mixing frame rates and there can be serious problems down the road when you're ready to output.

I was having trouble inporting footage from a Panasonic GH2 camera. I paid a techy to help, he used iMovie and dragged clips straiht into capture scratch and from there intp the browser window.
Have never used compressor to convert footage will research that, have you any links to explain that process?
What do you think about the iMovie inport method, I was always told don't pull anything in or out of capture scratch folder, but i was using P2 carrd import then?
