The magnification and resolution settings for both program & source panels are identical. However, the magnification on the program panel is much higher than the source. The rendered video, of course, is produced with the higher magnification thereby blocking out a substantial % of the desired frame. What can I do to match the magnification of the source panel to the program panel? Thanks for your input in this regard!
It sounds like your Sequence setting
does not match your footage.
Or, right-click a media file and select 'New Sequence From Clip".
How do I choose the right sequence settings?
