Good day friends (newbie here) trying to play nice.


I have a .MOV file recorded from Gotomeeting.com "Codec: AAC, H.264, Linear PCM"


When I open it from my desktop it  plays in Quicktime in full screen, so far so good.

Final Cut Pro 7 won't import it as is. I am using MPEG Streamclip to convert the video.

When I "Import" the .MOV into Final Cut Pro 7, regardless of how I convert it in MPEG Streamclip (tried quicktime/mpeg4/"hdtv 1080i"/4:3 frame size/16:9 frame size) the video shows up as a "narrow video" with black space on either side of the video.


How do I convert it into FCP and have it still fill up the whole frame like my other video? I'm sure there is a way to trim it in FCP, but with  this video in particular I need to show the whole frame I can't trim anything off the top.
