Short tutorial for Final Cut Pro users on how to export and upload your web videos to vimeo in 2.35:1

Please excuse the slight scrappiness near the end as I missed out a small but important step and had to put it in afterwards!

    Another way around is using Compressor or if you finish your master with After Effects crop comp to region of interest.

    Do you know why there is a white line on the bottom in 1920x817 ? I didn't test it yet but is the problem fixed if we made a 1920x818 video ?
  • Thanh Long BACH plus 1 year ago
    A white line on vimeo I mean. :)
  • Thanh Long BACH plus 1 year ago
    It works with 1920x818
  • Philip Bloom pro 1 year ago
    For some reason odd numbers do this.

    Heh, while i was watching 2 previous videos - I wanted to ask about 2:35 aspect ratio...and now - here's the tutorial :-)

  • Lasse Henning plus 1 year ago
    Well, i just bought the software as you recommended, tried it out as described and i am fully satisfied!!! Thanks again Philip, i just got into HD DSLR filming but i am learning really fast thanks to your tutorials and Lynda.com.
    You are a beacon of light :-)
  • Lucas plus 1 year ago
    Hey Lasse, I just started using lynda.com. great site. Any tips on some good tutorials worth watching?!
  • Lasse Henning plus 1 year ago
    Lynda takes you through everything in a very organized way so i recommend that you start with the basics and gradually work your way through the entire material. I am learning Final Cut pro 7 and Adobe After Effects CS4 and i am very happy with Lynda so far!!!

    Can't you just export it out of FCP at that resolution?
  •  
  • Andrew Howe plus 1 year ago
    Cool effect, cheers

    Also learnt you can drag and drop Looks too. Sure wish I had learnt that a bit sooner.

  • Keegan O'Brien 1 year ago
    How come when I export it at 1920x817 the top parts of the 2.35:1 image are hacked off and it looks squished?
  • Olphus 1 year ago
    See minutes 4:50
  • Keegan O'Brien 1 year ago
    Yeah, it still doesn't work.
  •  
  • Lucas plus 1 year ago
    Very cool. Thanks for sharing Philip.

    I already have quicktime Pro so it wont let me download and use quicktime 7....AH!
  •  
  • chris pennarts plus 1 year ago
    Philip thanks again. Little question. What are your export settings in FCP. I always struggle with that. Thanks. It is so wonderful what you are doing.
  •  
  • I've tried this five times now and tried it three, and every time the entire video is just compressed (letterbox and all). I have no clue what it is I'm missing here...

    exporting my video, letterboxed, as a QT file. opening in QT, exporting it again and changing the resolution to 1280x545. each time it just squashes the whole thing instead of cutting off the letter box

    update: I guess my i'm not as observant at 2am as I am during the rest of the day. I didn't have "preserve aspect ratio" selected...
  •  
  • Mateo Vega 1 year ago
    1920x816 is for 1080p, what is the resolution for 720p?
    1280x...?
  • Pierre Reynard 1 year ago
    544
  •  
  • Edward Bishop plus 1 year ago
    Awesome. Needed that. Thanks.
  •  
  • 1280x545

    take the long side and divide it by the ratio (1280/2.35)
  • Paul Hamilton plus 1 year ago
    bravo
  •  
  • Shawn Butcher 1 year ago
    I uploaded a 1280x545 video, but Vimeo still put it in a 16x9 box, and added black letterbox borders!

    Is there a Vimeo Plus setting that let's you fix this?
    Anyone else have this problem?
  • Santiago A plus 1 year ago
    make sure you select crop on the size options
  •  
  • Santiago A plus 1 year ago
    whats the point to convert it in Quick time 7? i just do it straight from final cut!
  •  
  • akpe ododoru 1 year ago
    Fantastic tut Philip, you are a big inspiration to all of us newbies. Your work actually inspired me to go shoot my first video 2 days ago.
    Would really appreciate it if you can find the time to give some impute on what i have shot.

    You make it look so simple... Just out of curiosity, what looks did you go for in MBL? Whatever looks you used it just enhanced the original which is great!

    GREAT TUTORIAL
  •  
  • Ray Ortega 1 year ago
    From Philip's own site "MAKE SURE WHEN YOU EXPORT YOU SELECT MAINTAIN ASPECT RATIO WITH CROP!!"
    This was the key factor in getting this process to work for me.
    Otherwise you just get a squished version that still has your black top and bottom bars;) Thnx guys/gals.

    Philip, tkx for the crop tutorial! But i cant see which filter did you use for the color(film look). Its a free plugin?
  •  
  • markmcknight plus 1 year ago
    Thx Philip - it worked perfect! I shot some Seattle test footage on the Canon 5DII which I composed for 16:9 but the 2:35 crop still worked nicely. CHEERS!
    See flat anamorphic 2:35 result below.

  • Nick Turpin plus 1 year ago
    Hmm didn't work for me , followed exactly but came out still with black bars top and bottom but squished. I have Quicktime 7 as well.
  • Philip Bloom pro 1 year ago
    make sure you follow the instructions at top of this video as there is a small step missing
  • Nick Turpin plus 1 year ago
    Oops thank you Philip, rushing in without reading all the instructions is typical of my general approach to life.

    Your blog and tutorials have really been helpful in getting me started with film making with the 5dmkII, thank you for your generosity.

    did you work in ProRes422? Do you think that would make a difference if you have that as your sequence codec?
  •  
  • Dan Hashemi 1 year ago
    when exporting in quicktime to mp4 format, a 5min vid puts my CPU into overdrive (new macbook pro)...is this normal? my fans kick in to keep the temperature below 80!

    but awesome tutorials! thx! :)
  • Matt 1 year ago
    Completely normal — your processor *should* be working during an encode (export). Encoding video is meant to be intensive!
  •  
  • Ryan Hargrave plus 1 year ago
    You can just Send To.. Compressor and choose your output format (H.264) then go into the settings of that format and change the crop to use "Panivision". It gives you the right crop without messing with anything else.

    no quicktime or anything else.
  • Philip Bloom pro 1 year ago
    but this tutorial also shows you how to crop and move image with the 2.35 mask which is very important if your framing is off
  •  
  • love your tutorials philip...

  • Chedy Ben Fredj 1 year ago
    Thanx philip

  • RockySmokey 1 year ago
    Take a picture with your camcorder in 16:9 and then drop the image into your editing program. Then load the picture again on your camcorder so you can put masking tape on your LCD screen to get a good match.

    My Sanyo 1010 let's me take 16:9 pictures.

    Hey Philip, any news on you Premier cs5 workflow? read on your blog a few months back that you were using it. any comments on that? im fed up transcoding for FCP. it not only take ages but it takes loads of space too!. i decided to stick with Premier until a new FCP update for h264 and 64bit support.
    cheers,

    I'm not sure I understand the point of the 2.35 mask. Why do you need this?
  • Philip Bloom pro 11 months ago
    to remove the letterbox

    Where do you get the plugin? Is it built into FCP?
  • Philip Bloom pro 11 months ago
    it's built in
  •  
  • wato1972 11 months ago
    thanks philip very useful
  •  
  • Dominique MORLOTTI plus 11 months ago
    Very interesting but.... I don't understand why you need a cropping because the very interest of screening a movie, here on Vimeo, it's to see it on the whole screen of your computer's monitor... and when you do that you get an image surrounded, top and botton, by black. Except if you own a scope format screen computer which not exists so far...
  • Philip Bloom pro 11 months ago
    you will still see black top and bottom when full screen but when embedding and when viewing on here not full screen you dont get letterbox borders
  •  
  • Dominique MORLOTTI plus 11 months ago
    Sounds good. Thanks Philip. BTW what do you think about attaching a scope lens (Panasonic AG LA 7200) on a GH1 ?
  •  
  • Nate Horowitz 11 months ago
    I notice that when I attach widescreen to my smooth cam videos on fcp, some of them only have a bar on the top instead of cropping both the top and bottom. Can anyone help?

  • Bob Torrez plus 10 months ago
    Philip great videos and tutorials, traveled to salton sea many times, you did a terrific job on it...

    Philip what is the name of the plugin for the color grading used in this video...?
  •  
  • cphcocktailclub 8 months ago
    Was it real time when you were exporting? Cause when I do it, it takes WAY longer than that, and I have the last mac pro, so no exactly the slowest computer.
  •  
  • Robert Carrillo 8 months ago
    jesus thank you for bloom!!!!
  •  
  • Chenglei Wu 8 months ago
    Or you could just use After Effects..
  •  
  • Mateo Vega 8 months ago
    Isn't it 1920x802? Because 2.35:1 mostly refers to 2.39:1. 2.35:1 hasn't been used in the film industry since 1970.
  • Will Politan plus 16 days ago
    nope, the effect in final cut pro is exactly 2.35:1 and even if it hasn't been used, the exact pixel size has to be 1920/817=2.35:1 even tho thats weird you would be cutting off pixels in your image, according to the final cut cropping

    I love this tip. I do have a question though;
    What would the image crop size be
    for a 1.85:1 aspect ratio?
    1920 x ____?
  • John Gilluley plus 5 months ago
    I've been doing a lot of this. In theory 1.85:1 = 1920x1038 or 1280x692.
  •  
  • John Gilluley plus 5 months ago
    Hi Philip. I have a slightly left-field question.. Which screen-record software do you use for your tutorials? Love your stuff - been following for a while... Keep up the great work!
  • Philip Bloom pro 5 months ago
    hi john...screenflow. best. P
