Hi all, would appreciate any help from you guys im going round the bend- im on a friends machine and trying out PP5 for the first time.
I have a clip im trying to export with two other clips in the same sequence. The clip is a .mov file, 1920 x 1080.
When i right click on the two other clips (Mpegs, 320 x 240) and hit scale to frame, everything goes fine for them in the export and they fit the program window too perfectly. But for some reason when I do it with the above clip, there's lots missing around the edges. I'm even setting the project up to have 1920:1080 (16:9) before I start.
Also, when I import the offending clip into the source window it automatically sets it to 50% and it is viewable perfectly at 50% ( if I change the source window to 100% I can not see the whole frame in the source window). But at 50% in the program window, it is still cutting off huge amounts aroudn the edges.
Can someone please help and suggest some remedy for this? This is driving me demented. Cheers
Hi Jim, thanks for coming back to me- sorry im long getting back to you, ive been working.
I tried your suggestion ( selecting monitor to fit), but it's still cutting a massive amount off the edges of the first clip - which is 1920x1080. The second clip still fits ok though at 320x240.
Some more info - when I import the 1920x1080 into the source monitor, it automatically goes to 50%, and then displays perfectly. Then when I drag it to the timeline, alot of it is cut off around the edges as above. However, if I set tyhe program monitor to 50%, the same amounts are cut off.... Does that help?
Any other ideas?
Thanks again for the help
