Nest nested sequences.
Not the best way in terms of performance I guess. So its not a "local" problem, that these settings are grayed out, its the same on every system?
BTW: if I nest a "upper field first" sequence in a sequence with no fields (progressive), will i have a quality loss?
Personally I would create the new sequence with the right settings and Cut/Paste my clips into that.
Jim thanks a lot for the answer, but as mentioned in my first post, i am aware of this 'workaround'.
To be more precise:
1.) Is it true, that a User is not able to change the sequence settings of an existing sequence (resolution, field order)?
2.) If I create a Sequence (progressive) and place a Sequence (lower field first) in it with progressive footage, will I lose quality when exporting it as progressive?
This is my fear because there is one Sequnce with a non progressive setting "in between".
Like mentioned before, i a have a couple of pre-nestings before, so I have to take care of rendering performance also.
2. Don't know. Try it and observe the results.
