hi everyone I have been away for a while enjoying the countryside and missing my broadband connection. I have some footage I need to edit and some help would be appreciated.

The footage was shot in frame mode and 16:9 on an xl1 and i will edit on fcp.

How should I edit it. I knw in premiere I had to choose the aspect ratio I was going to edit in and then I would have to resize(squash) the footage. How is it done on FCP. I would hope to get true 16:9 aspect ratio on 16:9 screens or blackbars on 4:3.

Also having shot on frame mode (most shots are static and 'tripoded' ) do I now deinterlace prior to retouching in aftereffects?

thanks to all and glad to be back
