Scaling a previous made comp from 720p to 1080p
on Nov 22, 2013 at 4:35:45 pm

I have a comp i purchased from pond 5 that was created at 720p but I want to convert it to 1080p with out degradation.

Is there a simple way to do this without going to every precomp ect and resizing and scaling? Thank you

If there aren't any assets(jpegs,video) that are 720, then try this script. Recursive Scale

Thanks, but there is an asset, an Ai logo and when I use the upscale script the asset loses some clarity. Is there another way?

Do you press the continuous rasterization(looks like a sunburst) button for the logo, cause that should scale up without a problem.

Here is another question, last one I promise: I have trapcode particular creating particles in this same comp and now that I have re-sized everything, the particles are now materializing off center relative to where they where originally; how do I fix that?

Me, I'd just open up particular and grab the emitter position and move it to where it needs to go.

What happened is that the position of say 160,160 for 720 comp is different than it would be in a 1080 comp and that doesn't update. I'm sure there is a mathematical way to re-position it so it would be in exact same spot, but that's a little beyond me. If you absolutely need that though, ask in the expressions forum, Kevin or Dan could probably work something out for you.
