SUDDENLY sequence settings wrong, greyed out

Apr 28, 2013 11:36 AM

Wrong setting shows 1280, should be 1920, but greyed out.

This means previous stuff looks correct, but new additions

to the timeline are cropped. 

 

Kindly advise.

 

Thanks

Steve Z

    A sequence's setting can't suddenly change... it is what it is.

     

    Create a new sequence with the settings you need,

    then copy and paste the clips from the old sequence.

    the older clips are too small...

    Right click the clip in the Timeline,

    select 'Scale To Frame Size'.

     

    But

    You might want to go the other way...

    Use a 720 Timeline, and scale down your 1080

    (instead of up-scaling your 720).

    You can select multiple clips in the Timeline, right-click

    and apply 'Scale To Frame Size' to all selected clips at once.

    Works fine here... even with different size clips selected:

    (scaling together both SD and 720 clips up to a 1080 Timeline,

    and scaling together both 1080 and 720 clips down to an SD Timeline).

    CS6.0.3 / pc

     

    Try selecting every clip in the Timeline, right-click

    then select 'Scale To Frame Size'.

     

    The effect will be null (no change) on clips that already match

    the scale of the Timeline, then you can go through any problem clips

    and check that 'Scale To Frame Size' is in fact selected.

     

    You might have some letterboxed material in your

    Timeline that will still have black top and bottom

    even when 'Scale To Frame Size' is applied.

     

    Also, any 4x3 clips in a 16x9 Timeline will have black

    left and right when using 'Scale To Frame Size'.

     

    For any oddball clips, use Motion Effect > Scale

    instead of applying 'Scale To Frame Size'.
