Square and Non-Square Pixel Modes

External NTSC monitors, like you would use to preview your work in Final Cut Pro and Avid Express, display video quite differently than does your computer monitor. Standard definition equipment, such as a television set, uses non-square pixels to display an image while your computer monitor uses square pixels, therefore making the image you are preparing within your NLE for broadcast appear distorted.

Within Final Cut Pro you can configure your view settings so that as you work, your images will display back as they would appear on a video monitor.

- Go to view>Level>Show as square pixels

- Choose Show as square pixels from the Zoom pop-up menu.
