CS6 - multicamera sequence with different resolutions?

Aug 20, 2012 10:15 AM


I try to edit a multicam sequence with footage of the RED Epic (3840x2160) and a DSLR (1920x1080).


We shot an interview with two cameras. The final video will be FullHD. So we use the RED footage to generate two shots. A down-scaled and a cropped one.

Normally I use the RED footage in the non-cropped shot by (sorry my Premiere is German) "scale to framesize". So the 3840x2160 will be autmatically scaled down to 1920x1080.

When I use the "scale to framesize" to the multicam sequence also the DSLR-Footage will be shrunken.


So either the RED footage is too big or the DSLR footage is to small for the sequence. And I don´t wanna transcode the RED footage to FullHD cos i want to crop it sometimes, and I don´t yet know when. Is there any help?

    My recommendation is to leave the framing to the camera operator.  Scale the RED footage down to match and away you go.

    we want to do some crops sometimes to get another shot.


    Yes, I was suggesting you not redo the camera ops work.  Use it as is, the entire frame, but scaled down.
