Converting a project+content to a different format/size?
on Oct 15, 2009 at 7:53:08 pm

hi!

i have a title project in HD format (1920X1080) which i like to use, but i need it in pal.

is there any easy way of doing this without having to edit the size of the titles, and changing positions of elements and camera?

i just need all the elements in my new PAL project to look the same way they look on the HD project (except the aspect ratio of the frame, which is not an issue)


Thanks in advance!

[Avi Aflalo] "i have a title project in HD format (1920X1080) which i like to use, but i need it in pal. "

I will make two assumptions: 1) the HD comp is at a PAL frame rate of 25fps, and you mean 720x576 when you say "pal".

Based on my assumptions above, it's easy:
  • Nest the HD comp inside the SD PAL comp.
  • Scale the nested comp to fit from the top to the bottom. The sides of the nested HD comp will be cut off.
  • Render.

That's all there is to it.

first, thanks for the reply dave.

the thing is that i need to edit and rebuild the text and elements within the HD template and i want to avoid of working in such a heavy Frame size.

in another words, i don't want to nest the comp as an HD inside a pal but to somehow move them and they're animation to a pal scale and then edit what i need.

any other idea?

Parent the necessary layers in the HD comp to a null object, then copy-paste into the SD comp. Scale the null object to fit all layers properly.
