    Hi all,

    I tried to search a lot but found no topics around the problem I have. I shot 1920x1080p footage at 25 fps but I want my film to be 4:3 so 1440×1080 to keep the best quality. However from what it seems and from what I found Media composer doesn’t allow for such dimension. Even if it doesn’t what would be the easiest workflow to edit my footage in a way that I get an idea what it looks like in 4:3 and I can actually choose what I want to show in the frame (using frame flex i suppose) and then to export it in 1440x1080p? Thanks.

    What version do you have? Later versions, starting with MC8.x, allow you to create a custom frame size project, so you can make it whatever you want.

    The latest version at my university. You’re right. My lecturer advised me the same. Somehow I missed the custom option. Thanks!
