    I am trying to add a 2:40:1 (or perhaps a 2:39.) The Widescreen filter skips from 2:35 to 2:55. is there some other place inside FCP7 that I have missed?

    no, there is no 2.40 setting in that mask filter
    you need to generate your own mask in photoshop

    in my part of the world (Austalia) these days 2.40 is the norm, not 2.39.
    it’s an even number of pixels of the top and the bottom.

    here is what a local post house advised me:
    The final aspect ratio we deliver is 2.40:1 so in terms of HD it is 1920×800 (140 off top and bottom).

    Thanks for the info.

    I guess I’ll have to figure out Photoshop.

    Strange they have 2.55 but neither 2.39 or 2.40.

    Another reason to jump to Avid.
