Image quality question - editing in 1080p or 720p
on Mar 6, 2014 at 8:05:20 pm

Hello,

I'm cutting a showreel of my camerawork together and I'm currently editing on a 1080p timeline (most of my footage is 1080p). However, I have some shots that I would like to reframe or add some keyframe animation. For this reason I'm considering editing in a 720p timeline so that I can crop my shots while keeping them at full resolution... The alternative is to simply scale up the video I want to reframe on my current 1080p timeline. My question is - Would I maintain a higher image quality cropping my video in a 720p timeline, or if I scale up my shots and end up exporting my 1080p timeline to 720p will I get the same result?

Thanks!

Best to use your 1080 footage in a 720 timeline, and output 720p.
