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




    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).

    in the future.
