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.
I did that but now the picture is too small with black surround.
Well, the older clips are too small, now the new ones are right.
the older clips are too small...
Right click the clip in the Timeline,
select 'Scale To Frame Size'.
You might want to go the other way...
Use a 720 Timeline, and scale down your 1080
(instead of up-scaling your 720).
OK that seems to work, but only clip by clip, eh? Cant select a bunch of clips
to accomplish this en masse. Am I busting up my origianl resolution to do this?
Thanks a lot for this!
You can select multiple clips in the Timeline, right-click
and apply 'Scale To Frame Size' to all selected clips at once.
i tried that but no.
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'.
