1920 footage in a 1664*624 project resized. And scale is 100%
on Mar 12, 2015 at 7:57:29 am

Hi All.
I'm in an urgent situation.

I'm editing a 1664*624 project using 1920*1080 footage.
My original clip in storyline are resized fittin the frame (in height, so I've two blacks to the sides) and this is ok.
But when I try to scale, to fit all the frame, I notice that scale is 100%.

Why? My clip is bigger than project!

Any help or advice asap is welcome.

Thanks

Federico

Hi, Frederico.

This is "relative scale" so that if you are using Proxy images at 50% of the size of the Original image, and scale the Proxy down 25%, it will also scale the Original down 25% when relinked to the original size material. This maintains the relationship of the size of the image to the size of the raster, so that you son't have to rebuild all of your keyframes.

For you, if you need to see the actual scale, set your spatial conform in the inspector to "none" from the default of "fit" for the clip. This will then show you the native size of the clip ratline to the size of the Project raster. Then scale it down to fit the raster size needed.

wow Jeremy!
thanks a lot.

Sometimes I asked myself what was "Spatial confrom", whitout answer. Now I have it.

I don't use proxy... I think I would be more happy if default would be "none". Now I've to rescale all my clips :(

Anyway, thank you again.

It is a compositing project.
Sometimes I need to select only a portion of the frame, sametimes I need to zoom in an another part, keyframming.
My post object was only an example. I've a very various kind of material and scale is for me the fast way to obtain results.


thank you again

The reason why I'm wondering is that you can still use the default "fit" spatial conform, and use scale. There's no difference in quality.

Alternatively, if you'd prefer to work the other way, you can select all the clips in your Event/Browser, and set the spatial conform to "None" before adding it to the Project. This way, every time you add a new instance of the clip, it will not be conformed to the timeline size.

I hope I'll remember your advice next time :)

Are you shure there's no qualtity difference in both method?

In my project, when I changede spatial conform to none (as you suggested me) and resized (all!) the clips manually, quality chaged.
With fit, resize was (pe.) 150% and, after changing, was 105%. So result was less upscaled.

Do you think it is only my misunderstanding?

Either method results in basically the same process.

The only difference is the math that is happening is calculated differently.

If you use "fit" and the scale stays at 100, your image is still being scaled down the exact same amount as if you used "none" and scaled the image to fit in the project.
