I have DSLR still photos shot at 1920x1080 (16:9) ratio
Photoshop confirms the dimensions-- and also square pixels. (72dpi)
If I create a timeline in FCP7 choosing a 1920 x 1080 preset (HDTV)...
---when I place the photo on the timeline-- it does not fit the frame. Black bars on each side.
So , my quesiton is --Why? the dimensions are the same---- so I think it should fill the frame perfectly.
To further confound the situation -- If I create a colored test jpeg in photoshop 1920 x 1080 (square pixels 72 dpi) and drop that in the FCP7 timeline-- it fills the frame perfectly.
So my 1920x1080 DSLR stills and my 1920x1080 test photoshop jpeg (identical specs as far as I can see...) behave differently in FCP7....
Any help appreciated.
OMG! Staring me right in the face and I still didn't see it.
Many thanks for the catch!
2000 photos--- I'll batch process them in PSD -- cheat a bit so they are not too squashed.
Wow, I can't believe I didn't see that!
