I'm hoping this is a simple question. I have footage in 1440 x 1080 and created a project with the same dimensions.

How come then I have a wide black border around the edge of the image as if the project were actually wider and higher.

I can do a transform so that my image fills the screen but that takes a long render.

Thanks for your ideas

That's terrible. Wondershare should absolutely not be used for this. Convert the media using MPEG Streamclip or Compressor. Convert to QuickTime, never MPEG-4. Use a production codec. ProRes would be best. Make the audio uncompressed 48k. The size should be set to 1920x1080 if you're going through a conversion process.

Thanks. I used MPEG Streamclip to convert the media to QuickTime using these settings  Imported the file and cut it into an FCP project and it looked like this  The Streamclip converted file is 605MB.
