So I am pretty new to the world of editing and this is my first project. I have a PC and amd using windows 7 OS. I shot the footage in 1920x1080 at 24 fps however I did not set the project settings accordingly, so I am having difficulties rendering out at those settings. Someone suggested that I open a new project with the proper settings and just Import my current project into that. I tried this but every single time i try to import (either entire or just part of) my project, Cs5.5 freezes!
Anyone have any suggestions for me? I could realllllllly use the help!
First of all, projects don't have these settings any more, sequences do, and you can have any number of different sequences in any given project.
Right click on a clip in the bin and select New Sequence from Clip. That will create a new sequence that properly matches your footage. Then delete the clip that's there, and Copy/Paste everything from your old sequence into the new. You may have to go through and adjust some edits, depending on the settings for the first sequence.
