We're going to need some more info about what you are doing. Do you mean to put 1920x1080 footage into your sequence? What will you be outputting to for viewing/distribution? Where does "anamorphic" fit into the equation? Just not following what you want to accomplish

Hey Jeff, Yes, my goal is to use 1920x1080 footage and drop that into a sequence that was setup 1920x810. I tried doing so and the original footage was distorted. I would rather just crop the top and bottom of the original 1920x1080 instead of having it distorted. Thanks much for the help.
Right-click the clip on the timeline and see if "Scale to Frame Size" is checked. If so, turn it off. This can be done globally in Edit > Prefs, but only affects clips upon import, does not affect those already in the project.
This should provide the effect you want of cropping the top and bottom, but still curious how this will be output. If you want to go to Blu-ray or anything that is a "video standard", then you are better off to use the full HD frame size and add black bars to get the "look" you want

The better option is to work in a sequence that matches the footage, and crop upon export.
Thanks guys! I really appreciate it.
