recapture one clip

What's the best way to recapture one clip in a timeline?

I have a SD clip that I want to recapture in HD. I don't want to capture all unused head/tail from the main clip, just what's being used in the timeline plus 1sec handles. Any ideas?

Go fly fishing.

Copy the clip into a new timeline. Save. Media Manage this timeline to create Offline. Change the sequence settings to the HD of choice. Delete unused media and set handles (just in case).

Open the new timeline with the one offline HD clip (Media Manager will have set all the right parameters and scaling). Capture. Done

Thanks for the feedback.

What I ended up doing was opening that clip in the viewer, making a subclip, selecting the subclip and running media manager to get rid of the unused media. Then I made it offline and recaptured it with 1sec handles in HD...

My guess is there's an easier way that I'm not aware of. Shouldn't have to get rid of a clip to make a new one...

Sorry to come late to this thread, but you couldn't you have noted the timecode from the original clip, entered Log and Capture, punched in the timecode (plus and minus your handles), and logged the clip to avoid the media manager?
