(Source: Variety) A WGA strike could have a fast and severe effect on post-production houses, especially those that get the bulk of their work from television.

“We’ll be biting the bullet and downsizing, trying to keep everyone we can employed, but this strike will affect more than writers and producers and production-side people,” said Post Group CEO Stephen Buchsbaum, expressing a viewpoint in sync with much of the industry’s post-production community.

Dailies, a significant portion of business for Post Group and other companies, would stop with shooting. “Production will stop on at least two of our (episodic dramas),” he said. “The other two will have two shows written and greenlit.”

Sony may sell parts of the units that created effects for “Spider-Man 3,” left, and the animation studio that produced “Surf’s Up.”

It is unfortunately the case with Final Cut Pro that you are stuck with the video format you set when you created the project. You cannot change the video format once the project has been created. Having said that, you may have other options.

  • You mentioned that you tried creating a new anamorphic project and then copying your clips into it, but that the images appear stretched. You may be able to fix this within your input clips by adjusting their format without having to re-cut from scratch.
