Exporting 1920 X 1080 comes out 720 X 480

Hey, I have some basic exporting I am trying to do and when I choose to export the video quicktime video use the current settings it keeps exporting it to 720 X 480. I have tried to figure this out myself but with no idea why it's doing this. Any help would be great.

Check that your sequence isn't set to SD. In the menu bar go to Sequence > Settings

Thanks, I did that right after posting this and realized what I did and it seems now I have to reedit the whole thing again.

Hmm you might not have to. What's the problem? The clips all look distorted now?

Yeah sort of, once I change the aspect ratio to either HDTV 1080(16:9) or the HD 1280X1080(16:9) it seems to zoom out to 22% and when I try to fit to window it does nothing but when I put it to 100% it doesn't fit the display, turns out all funky.

1st step: What format is your original footage?

2nd step: Create a new sequence. Go to sequence > settings and in the bottom left corner click Load Sequence Preset. Choose the preset that matches your source footage. For example if it's DVCPROHD 1080i60, choose that.

3rd step: Select all your footage in your original timeline and paste it into the new timeline you just created. It will look distorted.

4th step: Double click on one of your clips and in the Viewer click on the Motion tab. Adjust the scale to 100 and in the Distort drop down adjust the Aspect Ratio Slider until your footage looks appropriate.

5th step: Once that clip looks good, right click on it and choose Copy. Select the rest of your clips and choose Paste Attributes. Check the boxes Basic Motion and Distort. The rest of the clips should look good.

Obviously if you have different types of footage in your timeline this process will take more time.

Holy crap! like freakin magic. I didn't need to mess with the distort aspect ratio other than bringing it back to 0 but man thanks for the help.
