Uprezzing is usually a bad idea, because it seriously deteriorates the quality.The best approach is to use a plug-in like Red Giants Instant HD.
If you don't care about quality, use Motion/Scale in the Effects Control Panel to resize.
Hi guys, thanks for the help but none of them really help.
I have a video ...
Now I need to make 1 version of it in LARGER size ...eg 1024x768
And then I need to make a smaller version of it ...
So like a feature, like in Photoshop where you can resize an image
I looked at EFFECT CONTROLS and then Motion but it doesn't resize the video it just UPSCALES it or the position of it but you can't resize the OVERALL size of the video
Can someone help with this?
You might not like what Harm or Todd are telling you but, unfortunately, that's the way it is.
To scale up into new sequences, you'll need to create a new sequence for each version you require: one at 1024 x 768 and the other at 720 x 575.
You then drag the original .mp4 sequence into each new sequence in turn, scale up and then output.
I'm assuming that the mp4 is 16:9, in which case, the 720 x 576 sequence will have to be anamorphic widescreen.
Remember: as Harm and Todd say, enlarging any image beyond its original resolution will degrage its quality because, through interpolation, it will attempt to create new pixels where non existed before. This creates that pixelated effect we've all seen when digital photos have been enlarged too much..
Thanks JMS but how do I even begin?
I click on New Project - OK
Then in the SEQUENCE dialog - which preset do I choose or how do I make my own one because I can't seem to change the digits in the pixels field area
Do you know what I mean?
In your existing Project, just choose New Sequence, and set it to the desired pixel x pixel dimensions. Drag your Clip to the New Sequence, and then apply the fixed Effect>Motion>Scale to fill that new Frame Size. Judge the quality. If satisfied (it will degrade, and nothing can be done about that), then Export to the same Frame Size in the desired format/CODEC. Note: not all Export settings will allow all Frame Sizes, so there will be limitations on what you choose for Export.
Repeat that process for all desired Frame Sizes.
Good luck, and hope that helps,
