I imported some stills but forgot to uncheck "scale to frame size"
So I am wondering if I uncheck that box, then use the replace media function on each individual picture to replace in project (using copies so as not to be the original files), will they then import unscaled? I did this but noticed that each image properties on the timeline has the box checked (scaled to frame size)
Select images on the timeline, right click and deselect Scale to Frame Size.
Right, but does replacing the image as above import it as not scaled?
Yes you can but you will have to reimport all the images.
My method is quicker and the result is the same.
