To Anyone that has Final Cut Express 4 savvy...
Let me see if you have seen this before
First off let me clue you in...
I am teaching video to 5th graders and using mostly Mini DV tape cameras
when i download video from the camera into FC4 it looks fine (full frame) and i can even edit the clips in it for a day or 2
the problem is on any given day i can boot up the Mac Mini I just got new and using only for video...
and the same video clips will be in widescreen aspect ratio
now if this were the old i movie that would be no problem but in FC4 I can find no selection to restore them to their original inputed format..
I possess Diana Weynand's training manual for FC4 but it is no help
If anyone can enlighten me on what I am not seeing here I would appreciate the most prompt response as I am trying to finish a Christmas Video for my kids to take home for the holidays and our Christmas Vacation starts after this next week
thanks so much for whatever help you can provide
you can email me direct with the info to firstname.lastname@example.org
