I am working on a short video clip shot using 5D Mark II - 1080p. I am editing on FCP 7 and want to change my sequence from 16:9 to anamorphic widescreen without any distortion...anyway this can be done? All my raw files and transcoded file are 16:9.




Final Cut Pro 7, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    sure.  fcp will automatically adjust this when you edit a clip into the sequence, so after changes the sequence settings, simply edit a source clip at the end of the sequence.   Does it display correctly?  If so, select the clip, copy, and then select all the other clips in the sequence, hit option-v (paste attributes) and make sure just basic motion and distort are checked.  Should fix everything.  Then delete that clip you added at the end of the sequence.


    Oh yeah, probably a good idea to duplicate your sequence before doing this, in case you make a mistake (or if I've made a mistake - nah, that wouldn't happen).


    good luck.

    Not sure what you're talking about.  cinemascope is much wider than 16:9.   what I described should work for standard square pixel 16:9 to anamorphic standard def.
