    Help! FCP squeezez picture during playback in Digital Cinema Dea
    Hi everyone, I'm editing Apple Prores 422 PAL 4:3 material in FCP7 on a Macbook pro. Now the problem is when I go into Digital Cinema Desktop preview to look at what I've done, the image playback is squeezed even more than 16:9 (more like 1:2.35). When I stop the playback the still frame displayed has regular 4:3 aspect ratio. Now since I'm working on a laptop, meaning only one screen, the only option I have under Video playback in Digital Cinema Desktop Preview - Main, so can't really change that but even when I plugged in the hard drive to a Mac pro with two displays, changing Video playback settings didn't help. Is there a way of changing the aspect ratio of the laptop screen itself OR is there another way of solving this problem? Thanks in advance!

    Don't know that I've ever seen this happen before. I'd love to see screen shots of the Canvas and then the full screen. What is the resolution of your monitor set to? I am trying not to say this, but have you considered moving up to FCP X?
