i wish i could say LOL to your reply but all that happened is i broke out in a cold sweat. there's nothing out there like aperture for stills? i can't reshoot this - it was a 4 day canoe trip getting knocked out of our boats by hippos, crocodiles lurking on the banks, etc. i guess i just have to skip all the wide stuff...
If you still want to use it just scale the footage up in the effect controls/motion/scale.
i'll give it a go, ann, thanks

This will really crap out your quality, however. Premiere is no good at scaling interlaced footage with any fidelity.
If you are really stuck and you need to use those shots I may be able to help you. I know of a process that can do a nice job on this but it is a bit involved.
You may email me @ d.isaacs --at-- comcast --dot-- net if you'd like my help.
I know it looses quality but could tell us in short here what that process is.
Sure... The general process is this:
1.) Bob-deinterlace / interpolate the 1080i footage (double the framerate at full resolution)
2.) Scale the video
3.) Sharpen the video slightly to compensate for scaling
4.) Crop the video back to 1080x1440
5.) Weave adjacent frame pairs into interlaced video (back to the normal framerate)
The tools required for this are DGIndex, AviSynth + plugins (DGMPEGDec, LeakKernel Deinterlacer), AviSynth Import Plugin for Premiere (or an MPEG2 encoder that can encode HL@HL 1440x1080).
Take a look at my posts in the "HDV -> SD DVD" and "Film look from video" threads. This process has a lot in common with those.
1. What does Bob mean?
2. just use the sharpen effect or use duplicated track with the superimposed track the sharpen effect and lower the opacity?
> What does Bob mean?
"Bobbing" is a method of deinterlacing while simultaneously doubling the framerate and maintaining full-resolution (either by duplicating, interpolating, or motion-estimating the missing lines).

Yeah, you could do that in Premiere if you like. I get the feeling that AviSynth would do faster, however.
