Hi all,
I'm trying to blowup a few frames of a shot/take by about 15%, then manually shift and crop the frames to correct the poorly framed shot.
This is an easy enough operation in FCP, but the rendered frames are way to soft and pixelated. Is this a Cinewave CODEC issue?

The project was shot on BetaSP, and captured 1:1 from a Digibeta VTR through the SDI tether of our Cinewave system.

Capture and Sequence preset is Cinewave YUV uncompressed. Should a slight blow-up destroy the image? I've done this successfully Avid Meridien sytems.

Is there a better way to do this?
Thanks,
Candace

You must have something set incorrectly. I do this all the time and it works fine. Are you rendering these clips or are you using RT?

I'm rendering the adjustments to the clips in the sequence.
Not using RT. What settings could cause this problem?

I do it all the time too, but have never really been too convinced by the quality of the final image. I do it all at best quality but it has never looked as good as when I have done it on other systems such as smoke or inferno

FCP scale/interpolation leaves a lot to be desired but what is described here seems more like setting error.

[Joe Murray] "but it has never looked as good as when I have done it on other systems such as smoke or inferno "

"Apples" and oranges. Try using Shake. I think you'll find it can accomplish this task with results as good or better than smoke or inferno (at a much more attractive price).

Thanks everybody. The problem does not appear to be in the sequence settings. I'll post the solution if I find it.
