How do you create a new full frame sequence to change it from wide to full screen to burn a dvd? I tried creating a new project and importing the current sequence, but it imports the entire project with all the individual clips on the timeline, what is the practical way of doing this?
Create a new sequence using "full frame settings" and then nest the widescreen sequence in the new sequence. Now scale the nested sequence to your satisfaction.
