Using the good old fcp7 for cutting a vid with 5D footage something strange occurred. As per usual I let fcp adapt the sequence settings to the first file i dropped in and went on my editing mission.
Now I wanted to export the video (after days of cutting) and fcp is telling me that the sequence settings were set on 720p, with pro res 422 hq - but I compressed the original files into 1080p pro res 422 (not hq). Also the files in the bin are 1080p , pro res 422 - so I definitely dropped the right setting in the sequence...
When changing the sequence settings to 1080 p pro res 422, the clips within the sequence remain on 720p and thus stay small within the new 1080p window.
My Question: How do I change the sequence settings together with the clips, so that I have everything in 1080p pro res 422, without loosing any of my cuts?
I'd be really grateful if someone could help me with this, as my deadline for the project is very near and I don't have the time to re-edit...
No problem. Just change the sequence settings as you did before.
The reason why the clips stay small is that they have a resize-filter on them. (Gets automatically applied if you cut footage in a timeline with a different resolution)
Highlight all your clips and right click on them. Select "Remove Filters" from the pop-up menu. Remove the resize filter and done!
