I'm editing on Avid Symphony 6.0.3 with 1920x1080 footage. My project is to be screened in a movie theater. We shot mostly Cineform with a little bit of Red and 5D footage for B Roll. We are AMA linked so we will be using the full quality footage to online and export. We've tried not going past 130% with the "Resize" Effect but we have a couple that are around 150% While they look fine on a 42-inch television, I'm assuming this wouldn't fly in a theater. I have AE CS5.5. So I have a couple of questions...
Is there an optimum push-in for 1920x1080 footage with the least amount of quality loss?
Is there a better way than using the "Resize" effect in Avid? If so, what effects?
Are there any AE plug-ins or resize effects in AE that are better?
