    I make videos on YouTube, and just recently upgraded my editing software to Final Cut Pro X. It’s working really well, and I love to work with it, however my videos don’t fit the YouTube play window anymore. I’ve tried all I could and I still have no idea how to fix it.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    (You can find the videos, if it would help you, by going to my YT channel. )

    I checked your videos. Are you talking about the black bars to the right and left of your video? You are either shooting with a camera that isn't set to 16x9 (ex: 720 or 1080) or you are exporting 4x3 rather than 16x9

    I’ve tested every setting on both my camera and FCPX, but I’m still getting those bars. Guess I’m going back to iMovie. haha
