downsizing a video clip
on Sep 29, 2015 at 10:06:46 pm

I have few 1080p clips, and I want to edit in 720p.
When I drag my 1080p clip into a 720p sequence, which step do I take is the best?
Do i right click and scale to frame size, or go to motion and and scale it down.
Or are these two giving me the same result, trying to preserve quality.

If you auto-scale to the timeline size, you're new 100% is the 720 frame size.

I personally like to assign a motion (scale) percentage of 67% and have the option to 'zoom in' a bit if I want to mess around a little with the composition.

You can save the motion setting as a preset to save a couple steps...

set to frame size would be better than scale to frame size.
