    Hi Fullscreen playback after QT con, If you're working in 4:3 (standard TV) and your screen is widescreen 16:9 then unless you stretch the picture it won't touch the sides of the screen. You could crop the footage in FC to make it 16:9 and then if youe xport it right it will playback fullscreen on a 16:9 monitor. Think about the footage you are importing and the destination of the output (how people are going to view the video - on what device(s), etc). When you choose to export click on settings and go through the size settings to take away the pillarbox crop bands. Also, check out the final cut videos - there's so much important stuff to know, that if you're doing some corporate editing I feel these videos can save you time!

    If the TV has an aspect ratio of 4:3 then yes. Always best to try it out... take a small clip, create a DVD using iDVD or something simple, and play it back on your TV. Cheers Rounik

    ... another thing to add to this bit too. You can change the display properties of a file in Quicktime, movie properties I think it is. As Rounik pointed out, it will depend on what it was captured at, PAL/ NTSC/ HD(V) etc... what you want to display it as... and that will determine whether or not you will have to do some file converting to be displayed correctly.
