I seem to have a bit of trouble importing a vid in its native res. The res for the vid is 1280x720, however when i set this res inside the program to import the vid i get a smaller video size with a large black box surrounding it. sad

Is it possible you could upload a short clip of the footage and give us a link, so we could take a look?

Sounds like the video you're importing isn't actually 1280x720 and is in fact a smaller res than your project.

That's what I was suspecting as well, which is why I was hoping to see a brief clip of the footage to confirm.

I am having the opposite issue. I shot some 1280 X 720 on my Nikon D90 and when I tell it to open in EffectsLab Pro video is larger than the working area. When I back off on the work area zoom I see image handles out side the "image frame" It looks like I could pull them in and make it fit but then it would not look right when I export it back out in to FCE to complete the project.

I think I just have a setting in EffectsLab Pro set wrong but I am not sure which it is.


Well this is odd... I know I shot it at 720p and when I look at the project properties in FCE it says it is 720p, but when I exported it to an .mov to pull in to EffectsLab Pro it seems to have exported it at 1920x1080. Not quite sure how that happens and I am a bit worried how it will look when I pull it back into FCE for full render with the rest of the project.

I am open to thoughts or suggestions.

I'd recommend changing your export settings from Final Cut, and exporting to the correct size. Then set up a project in EffectsLab at that resolution, and have at it.
