Mixed Frame Sizes within the Same Project
on Oct 31, 2012 at 6:18:56 am

I just completed logging and transferring all of my footage to start editing my project and lo and behold I notice that some of the footage is 1280x720 while some of the other footage is 1920x1080. What should I do? Can the two co-exist in the same sequence or will I have to do something to make them compatible?

Panicked in L.A.

No problem. Edit on a 1280x720 sequence.
If you do the other way, you will need to blow up a lot the 1280x720 stuff and will lose quality.

As should be.
With the same time base and with same codec, the 1920x1080 will have much higher data rate than the 1280x720 footage.

Don't worry about the data rate variations. Don't worry about the differing sizes. Worry about two other things:

1) Everything gets transcoded to ProRes 422
2) The frame size you need to DELIVER.

The delivery size -- the H&V resolution -- will determine the H&V resolution to which you'll transcode all the clips. Transcoding to ProRes 422 ensures a trouble-free edit in FCP.
