so ive gotten half way through a large project and kept all my clips organised got half way through and accidentally clicked enter. It started rendering and I’m like this is such a bad thing (I’ve never done it this way before) and let it render. I go replay and the quality of the video is really poor and pixelated. I’m not sure jf there is anyway I can reverse this process or am i going to have to import all new footage?
Any my sort of help will be appreciated
Rendering the timeline only creates TEMP files on the hard drive, and unless you specifically check the Use Previews option when exporting, these TEMP files with NOT be used and will have no bearing on the final product.
Jeff's correct ... PrPro for most purposes is "non-destructive" ... it references the video files but does not change a pixel of them. Previews are separate files period. It sounds like you need to go into your sequence settings and select a more appropriate preview format/codec.
