4K Edit into a 1080p Resolve Lite Master Session
on May 9, 2012 at 12:16:52 pm

I've done a few 4K edits (from the Scarlet-X), and every time I import my XML (from Premiere Pro) into Resolve Lite - I get black bars at the top, bottom, and very thin ones on the sides. This is probably due to the 1920x1080 limitation of Resolve Lite, but even when I correct the aspect ratio like 1920x1011 or whatever - or even use the 'stretch all corners' scaling or other scaling methods in the config tab in Resolve Lite I still get these black bars (but slightly thinner). I have to scale up the footage later in After Effects for final renders.

Dumb? Remedies? Any fellow battlers share this pain?

i do not have lite to test with but you could zoom in on format page i think in resolve.

no need for AE afterwards. but you have to test it as i do not have lite at hand and premiere now.

Sounds like whoever did the offline edit resized the clips. Try importing the XML and deselect "use sizing transforms," or whatever that particular setting is in the load XML dialog box. Use fit to current format (the default setting, NOT "stretch to corners) and it should be fine. The black bars at the top and bottom have nothing to do with resolution and everything to do with aspect ratio. If the material was shot in a 2:1 aspect - common for Red material - it will be letterboxed because you're fitting it into a 1920x1080 container.

Yeah - Id expect a letter box as its not exactly 16:9. But why in the world would I want 2-3 pixels of trash black on the sides of my footage in addition to the letter box? Absurd.

This is a bug with certain types of material.

Make sure you have Source Blanking turned OFF under the Format Tab. Should solve the problem.
