Hi All,

I did have a good search through the threads already here on this, but couldn't quite find what I was looking for.

I've recorded footage on a gopro using 48fps and 960p resolution.

I can import it into iMovie, and it keeps its 4:3 960p aspect ratio where you select parts of the video you want to add to the movie clip.

However the edited movie clip itself is cropped top and bottom to 16:9.
I can see where it says "1080p HD" but it doesn't give me an option to change it.
Anyone able to help me?
Thanks in advance

QUOTE Thanks

I don't use iMovie anymore but I think I know how to fix your problem

1) Select a clip in the timeline.

2) Select the "Adjust" button at the top of the window.

3) Select the "Cropping" adjustment (the two right angles that form a square)

4) Select "Fit"

That should do it. The project will still be 16:9 with black bars on the outsides but your images should show uncropped, full frame.

That was it, so simple but did the trick.
Thank you!
