Have nested a green screen actor on a background consisting of several layers. When I then keyframe a zoom in the resolution suffers as if it was not nested and I was just zooming in on a 'normal shot' (i know the existing footage is better resolution because if a layer the existing actor back on and 'match it' the resolution improves dramatically - 'yes' i can do this, but then what's the point of nesting?) Why does it 'dumb down'
the pieces held in it?

Would love some insight on this.

Have ha the same issue with nesting in FCP7 if that means anything...

Thanks,

Mick

What's the original resolution of the ftg?

is it native resolution in the timeline?


or was it some sort of up or down scaling to begin with?


what is it that you are ultimately trying to achieve?

It's 4K footage in a 4K timeline.

Basically, I have four members of a band each shot head to toe (4K) on green screen. They have been placed in and on a background I created using layers of Jpegs. They have been "shrunk' to various scales to fit in this. Now that I have the whole 'wide shot' created I want to do some camera movement within this new world. All that is fine and working. But the resolution suffers when I zoom into the 'nest' as premiere pro seems to have 'forgotten' that the files had better resolution (seems to be taking the new 'shrunken' resolution).



Thanks Alex!

So I'm looking to see if anyone has a solution to this issue? Why does premiere not use the full resolution of the files when in a nest?

thanks again, mick
