I have received a clip in 720P .mov format that I need to use for a 1080P project. I only need to make some titles to this clip and then export as 1080P. Within PrPro, it becomes extremely choppy to maneuver, making it impossible to edit. Should I convert it to another format before attempting to edit it?
Another question is, the native 720P looks small on the HD screen, and I plan to increase the Motion Scale to 150% in PrPro to make it occupy the whole screen. Is that the best way to do? I know any up-scaling will make the image look rough. But I have no choice as the source was 720p.
Thank you in advance!
Instead of using Motion > Scale, right-click your 720 clip
on the 1080 timeline and select 'Scale To Frame Size'.
Above the 720 clip will either be a red or yellow line.
In order to ensure smooth playback in the timeline,
Or, use: Sequence > Render Entire Work Area.
Thanks, Joe! I have followed your instructions and it turned out to be perfect.
