What are your preferences settings for default scaling?
And how are you creating the sequences? Drag/dropping a clip from the project panel onto the new item icon, as is most often suggested?
What does the media frame-size show in the project panel and what sequence settings do you get?
My default scaling for media is "set to frame size", and when I create a new sequence I always just drag and drop clips from the project bin to the sequence window.
When I create a new sequence from a clip the sequence settings automatically change to ARRI cinema editing at 23.976 fps. The pixel ratio is at 1 and is at 1920x1080 just like the clip. For some reason it just zooms in super close and the ratio in the editing preview is way wider than the video.
Is your program monitor display size set to “fit”?
I feel so stupid ha. I had it set to 100% but didn't think to set it to fit. Thanks so much!
