Hello All;
I captured some footage from a Standard Definition Camcorder that has a wide screen. It looks like it is wide screen when played back in FCP. However, when I export to MP4, it does not look wide screen. Is there any special settings I need to use in the compressor to make the movie conform to the footage captured in fcp ? Thanks.

QUOTE Thanks

I would duplicate the MP4 preset you used and under Settings or Geometry in the Inspector, change the aspect ratio to 16:9 and/or change the dimensions to a widescreen size.
