I have completed my project in FCP 7 and I am trying to send it to a film festival. They need it to be a 1:77:1 aspect ratio-I think they mean 1:78 aspect ratio. I tried to analyze the clip but I don't see any aspect ration listed. Also how would I change the aspect ration on my project I already finished? Use Compressor?

Thanks in advance.

there's this wonderful new invention called  "google."  took me less than 10 seconds to find this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspect_ratio_(image) by searching "video aspect ratio chart."  Forgive the snarkiness, but being able to research this by yourself is an important skill to have.  Wikipedia is a great place to start looking Here's the relevant quote "16:9 (1.77:1) (generally named as "Sixteen-Nine", "Sixteen-by-Nine" and "Sixteen-to-Nine") is the international standard format of HDTV," So what are your sequence settings?  If you're material was shot within the last few years, it's almost definitely 16:9 (also known as 1.77:1).
