Spatial Conform set to "None" is making my video clips blurry?
on Apr 22, 2015 at 10:52:50 pm

I shot a couple of interviews at a 1080 resolution. My client wants the final video in 720. When I drop the original 1080 clips into a 720 timeline with the spatial conform set to "none" so I can frame the interviewee a little closer and better the footage looks really blurry. The clip is not scaled up at all, no filters or adjustments yet. I can not figure out why this is happening. Can any one help or explain the issue. Please and Thank you.

Side not I did read a few other forms on similar problems however, they did not help. I rendered the video out and it was still blurry. I also tried the same thing in After Effects and it did not get blurry. I realize I can export if form After Effects and I am good, but that is way to time consuming.

Can you post a screenshot of your timeline and project settings?

I think there's a best performance, best quality setting which might have impact. Just a wild guess because it does bite a few people when they think there's a quality issue that shouldn't be there.

If it is a bug you could always try setting it to fit and scale it up 150%.

As noted, the dropdown menu on the upper right of the viewer has options for Better Performance or Better Quality. Choose quality.

If it was the performance setting it shouldn't affect rendering but the OP says it rendered blurry. Maybe try a new project or library and see if it's just something weird with that particular timeline?

Awesome, thank you everybody for helping me out. The quality was set to better. I ended up creating a new project and that did work. I don't know what was wrong with the first one but, good call and thank you Jeff. So simple.

That setting only applies to playback. Rendered or otherwise. While paused you'll see full quality.
