Copy/Pasting clips between Sequences with different settings
on Jan 17, 2012 at 12:08:02 am

I have a problem. I have EX1 footage (XDcam EX, 1080-24p). I started editing a sequence but didn't change the presets and didn't realize the sequence was NTSC 60i 720x480 until I had a good amount of editing done. When I try to copy/paste the clips into a new sequence with the correct full HD settings the clips are miniaturized in the canvas because they are now standard Def clips in an HD timeline.

Is there any way to transfer my work to an 1080-24p timeline that references the HD settings of the original media master clips so I can keep my edits so far? Or do I have to start from scratch?

Thanks in advance for your help :)

Select all clips in the new sequence, then right click and choose Remove Attributes, check Basic Motion and Distort, then hit "okay."

There might be some small holes as a result of going from 29.97 to 24 (23.98) So check your timeline and pull up any one frame black holes if they appear.
