Converting an SD project to HD

Hi,

I am a newbie to Motion and would like to know how I make my SD Motion Project an HD one?

I am going from a DV sized frame to HD 1920 x 1080i

Any thoughts?

Create a new project in the desired resolution. Then apple-a select all layers in your original, apple-c copy them then switch to the new project- apple-v to paste into. Now you'll need to re-size and maneuver each item to fit the new size and shape of the frame.

Noah is right, you can also: While in your SD project file go up to Edit, Project Properties. Pick your HD preset and then as Noah said, "Now you'll need to re-size and maneuver each item to fit the new size and shape of the frame." Hope this helps.

When I saw the title of this tread
I thought it was going to focus on how to treat, message, process and cajole
standard resolution clips into looking their best when stretched to HD.

I'm thinking about upgrading to Studio 2 in a few days.
One of the things that caught my eye (watch the tutorials on the Apple site)
was the slow motion quality processing.

I was hoping that some combination of that processing power would
help enhance the stretching of standard clips into the realm of 1920x1080.

Anyone have a favorite recipe using Motion/FCP ?

Thanks

The "slow motion" process uses an algorithm to blend surrounding frames. This creates "extra" frames and make the clip look smooth as well. Up scaling the clip is a different thing. There are programs like Red Giant's Magic Bullet Instant HD that you might want to look into.
