Use a nested sequence and scale that down to 60%.
Or, In the motion effect, set the Scale how you want; copy that clip, select all the rest, do "Paste Attributes" too all the clips at once.
Ok I did what you suggested, and it works ( somewhat ), something is strange though.
I scaled the nested sequence down to 60% but instead of the images actually scaling "un-zooming" so I can see them, the whole series of images is scaling, but as in just getting smaller within the rendering window area. So I don't actually see the whole image like I wish to see, - scaling the sequence just makes the series of images smaller on the screen . ( example - in one image, I see the person's arm, where the full image shows the whole person ).
If I go and scale the image alone, the image becomes "unzoomed" and I can see the whole person, but in the sequence, the whole "zoomed" image just becomes smaller in the rendering window area.
Off to try CWrig's suggesion now,, but why is your suggestion not working for me ?
I just tried cwrig's and it works.
Now how come the nested sequence doesn't work the same way ?
I think this is what happens. When you use Harm's method, the nested sequence operates only on what you see in the first sequence. So if an image is zoomed in the first place, it will stay zoomed, but the zoom window will just look 60% smaller, and you will see black around the outside.
If you re-import the images with default scale to frame size chosen in the Preferences/General, then all the images should show fully.
The nested sequence acts as a separate entity from the clips that are in it. So any effects applied are to that sequence, and not the clips contained within it. Most times there will be no visible difference, such as color corrections or other such effects. This time, it did make a difference.
If you are just trying to make the full image viewable, just click the option "scale to frame size"
