    Trouble with scaling in Premiere CS5

    m0rr1s3 Level 1

      I recorded a 2 camera shoot in 1080p and need to crop past some heads in the shot. I made a 1080p source sequence, then brought that sequence to a dv 720x480 sequence for multicam editing for final output to dvd. I scaled the footage to 47% to fit the new 720x480 timeline. The footage looks fine at 47%, but when I scale to 90% and adjust the x,y postion as well the footage loses quite a bit of sharpness and looks  processed. Since I am not scaling past 100% I am confusesd why I am seeing a loss of sharpness.

       

      thanks
