Hi all, wondering if anyone can tell me what I'm doing wrong regarding this. I recently shot some footage in 16:9 on my JVC GY-110, I then imported and edited it in FCP, so far, so good. However, when I exported the finished edit as a QuickTime movie and then played the QuickTime movie, the image didn't appear as 16:9, but as a 'pillarboxed', almost 4:3 movie. I'm sure I set all the import/export preferences correctly in FCP so don't know what's going wrong.

Any help with this would be gratefully appreciated.
