Hi. Silly newbie question, might save me some time posting here. I've recently started a project with the majority of the footage (MXF) shot at 1920x1080. I recently shot some footage in slo mo for aerial shots needed at 1280x720 (as it's the only way to get 60fps in my camera). So obviously I need to 'conform' my footage to match. For example, Warp won't work if the footage doesn't match the sequence.

What is the normal way to do this? Should I render the aerial footage to put it in MXF format at 1920x1080 or reduce the sequence to 1280x720?

Thanks in advance.

Al

Just to be clear, I can right click and choose "scale to frame size" but I am unclear if whether I should then render the clips (they are currently red in the timeline), or something else...

thanks in advance.

Scale to frame size will cause quality loss.
It depends on what you find acceptable.
Instant HD by Red Giant will scale your footage up nicely.

Thanks! A couple of final questions:

1. When I do 'scale to frame size" I still get an error message with Warp Stabilizer (this is aerial video from a plane), that "Warp Stabilizer requires clip dimensions to match sequence".

So what is the correct way to do that? Do I first run a single sequence with the native 1280x720 footage on it, stabilize it with Warp, then import that new clip into the master sequence?

2. If so, do I run warp, then export to as 1920x1080 MXF file (which would match the master sequence?)

3. If not, what would be a different way to accomplish getting the clips warped?

Thanks in advance.

Many folks shoot slo-mo on 720 and res it up to fit the 1080 sequence.
Sounds like you'll need to use WS the old fashion way and go to AE...

Likely so. That's what I thought too. We'll see how it comes out. For now, I've simply chosen the "fit to frame" functionality, and will try rendering it out later.

You could also apply some sharpen or unscharpen mask.
by duplicating the clip, superimpose, add effect, tweak, and lower opacity to 50-70%.

Hey I found a work-around solution to use WS on Premiere CS6. It's not perfect, but this is how I did it:

1. Make a new sequence (Let's stay 'Sequence 01') that matches the dimensions of the footage you want to stabilize.

2. Place the said footage into the timeline of 'Sequence 01' and run WS. It should work.

3. Then, place 'Sequence 01' into the timeline of your main sequence and scale however from there.

Let me know if that helped. Cheers!

One really quick way in Premiere CS6 is to remove all effects and transitions, NEST the clip and then reapply the effects (dissolves, etc) :)
