Does you Captured footage match your Project Preset?
Is all of your footage Captured at the same exact setting? Sounds like there might be several settings used, but could be wrong.
If all things match 100%, then you should not have such behavior.
How do things appear, when you set the Program Monitor's Magnification from Fit to 100%?
THanks, Hunt. Yes, my captured footage matches my project presets. All source footage captured at same settings.
As to how things appear, it just depends on the day and the clip. Sometimes a clip fits perfectly in Fit, other times it is highly magnified or reduced. Sometimes setting it at 100% helps, but most of the time it doesn't.
I'm completely flummoxed....
I'm in the flummoxed boat, along with you. If the Captures are all the exact same, and they match the Project/Sequence Preset, I have no clue why things would change like this. My suspicion was that the Captured Clips had to differ, but they do not.
Sorry, I am out of thoughts, but am looking for a sail for the flummoxed boat...
Can't say I've ever seen the behaviour where a timeline clip affects the view magnification of the Program monitor.
Care to post say 1 or 2 seconds of RAW footage so we can try it in our versions? If you don't have a file-drop, I'm happy to loan mine.
Have you checked the "properties" of all the clips that are problematical and then compared them
to the ones that are not.
I do not know the structure of RED files but maybe you are looking at preview files (proxies) or similar.
How do you ingest RED files into your system and then how do you import them into your project?
