I have been editing footage with both 1080 and 720 footage on a 1080 timeline.. But since upscaling 720 to 1080 loses some image quality I have changed my mind and I now want my timeline to be 720 instead (my preferred output is also 720 on the net)..
Is there any way of copying and pasting my timeline on a new 720 sequence..? When I do it all the clips are too big for the frame and everything seems zoomed in!
1) Made a new 1280x720 sequence with all the other settings keeping the same with the 1080 sequence.
2) I copied and pasted my 1080 timeline onto the 720 timeline.
3) On the new 720 timeline, all my 1080 footage fit on my canvas window... However all my 720 footage was zoomed in! So I did what you said for just my 720 footage except it was not giving me the option to check the 'distort' box.. But I checked the 'Basic Motion' box anyway and it seems to have worked fitting my 720 footage perfectly onto my canvas window.
Have I done this correctly? Has my 720 footage lost some of it's quality because of this and am I better off just re-importing the 720 footage back onto my timeline?
