DVCPro HD in ProRes Timeline is upscaling
on Nov 17, 2011 at 1:49:57 pm

Hi,

I'm updating a really old project at work. The original project wasn't saved. It was only exported as DVCProHD 720p60.

We now work in ProRes.

When I drop the self-contained DVCProHD 720p60 video into a ProRes timeline, the distortion parameter changes to -33.33 (as expected), but the footage enlarges to 133.33%. Is that correct? That doesn't seem right, and that has never happened in the past (unless I just didn't notice the upscaling).

The original footage is 720p60 @ 960X720
The ProRes timeline is 720p60 @ 1280X720 with square pixels.

Thanks :D

Try this. Select the problem clip. The select "conform to Sequence" from the Modify menu in Final Cut Pro.

Brad Wright is software engineer, so it may be difficult to understand what he is saying. He is always happy to explain his greater detail.

I got the same result - Distorted to -33.33 and Scaled to 133.33%

Thats a handy function in FCP, though. I will keep that in mind when I have an entire sequence of clips that need to change to new sequence settings.

For now I will just take the video into Compressor and convert to ProRes since the video is a single self-contained Quicktime.

Thanks

Does the DVCPro clip shows "HD pixels" in the Browser, and do you have "Always scale clips to sequence size' (User Prefs> Editing)?

Raf,

The Pixel Aspect in the Browser says "HD (960X720)

"Always Scale Clips..." IS checked in Preferences.

And I'm still getting that upscaling to 133%

Thanks :)

Then that shouldn't be happening (dirty preferences?).
Remove Attributes: Basic motion + Distort.
