Im relatively new to Final Cut Pro X. How do you achieve the 16:9 widescreen effect? I hate those think, black lines/ boxes. I have been using the transform button to enlarge the video to a 16:9 effect, but I do not like the fact it cuts off part of the video and what you only see is only a person's face ( and not the whole video). Thank you.
If you have a phobia of FXFactory (like I do. I think they are great, but just want to keep my system clean) I made a little test version for a fellow fcp.co poster that adds a stretched version of pillar boxes. The trick is you need to set your 4x3 footage to "fill" and then apply the effect.
I would like to have my video/photo to be 16:9 "widescreen" like the photo on the left hand side. It covers the entire screen. Whereas the photo on the right side, you can see 2 thick black lines. Thanks
