Smile Saving Quick Time Movie as 'panoramic' view

Hello people.

I recently shot a load of 8mm footage in Sweden. I received the footage back which had been digitized onto a DV tape, I transferred onto my mac 10.6.8 using FCP.

The footage is of-course 4:3 as this is it's native aspect ratio.
However for aesthetic purposes i wanted to crop the image into a 16:9 aspect ratio. This is easy enough to do in FCP but then I discovered the 'panoramic view' button on the quick time play bar.

This viewing mode stretches the pixels in a way that creates a true 16:9 image without any crop whatsoever. I can not for the life of me figure out how to save the file in this format. Im using Quick time 7. Any help or tips on this would be massively appreciated.

Rather than change the movie, you could change the way that QT plays 4x3 material when in full screen.

QuickTime Preferences > Full Screen > Movie Size > =Panoramic= for standard movies
