New FCP/Drone user here. When i try to import my drone to FCP it automatically comes up as 1080p but when i change to 2.7 it is not full screen the only settings that works 2048x1152 (others have a black box around my footage).
My question is, when i upload GoPro and iPhone 11 (both i believe are capable of 2.7k im not sure) does it "upscale" those videos since my import settings are in 2.7K with the drone? I dont really understand the whole importing/video settings quite yet.
Video is imported at its native resolution, whether optimized or not. When you create a project you can specify the resolution by using the Custom setting. When dropping clips into that timeline, you use the spatial conform setting in the video inspector to determine how that native clip fits into your specified project. By default, FCPX uses "FIT" which will account for the borders you see with clips larger than your project size and different aspect ratios. You can select "FILL" instead to make the clips completely fill the project screen, or better yet, select "NONE" and then scale the 2.7K clips to exactly how you want them.
