I am wanting to export from Final Cut Express to a Hard Drive and playback through a network. Trying to achieve a 16:9 format in full screen. I can get 16:9 but only in the centre of the screen. i.e. Black around the picture. Any ideas greatly appricated.

    We will need to know two basics.

    First, clip properties.

    Second, Sequence settings.

    For Sequence properties right click the Sequence icon in the Browser and select Item Properties.

     

    Looking at the clip properties there must be a mis-match as that size will not work with any FCE easy setups/sequences without crunching them in manner.

    Not quite what I was looking for.

     

    I think the core of the trouble is the m4v export from iMovie.

     

    Try another export as a Quicktime file 25 FPS DV-PAL.

     

    Make sure FCE Easy Setup is DV-PAL to match, Easy Setups govern the Sequence properties.

    Sequence and clips should match is all details or you are up for needless rendering.
