    Unscaled Nesting Lowers Resolution Quality

    JHVW Level 1

      I found some previous topics on this, but most of the threads were several years old, so I wanted to ask about the current software.

       

      My main sequence is 720p. I have a ton of footage in 1080p. To enable warp stabilize, I nested the footage in a 1080p sequence. The scale of the original footage inside the 1080p nested sequence is at 100%. On the main timeline, the nested sequence is at 100% as well, so there is absolutely zero scaling.

       

      Despite this, I see a noticeable decrease in picture quality when playing from the main timeline. If I click through the nested sequence and watch the original footage, it looks fine. When I export, the quality loss persists.

       

      What's going on?
