With both the "extend clips" checked and unchecked the transition insist on going to the keyer track on my machine.
    Ok I render out from Imaginate using
    Uncompressed RGBA ([email protected] audio)
    upper field first
    put it up next to HQ from HDV footage and dissolve is fine with extended check or uncheck.
    With extended check I do have to trim otherwise you can dissolve.
    I do get red line with that 1920X1080 clip though.
    I think you meant 1920X1080 but I also do a custom and render out 1980X1080 and it still dissolve just fine.

    Ok I just upload a new bmp, not exactly the same frame but very close, I took a single frame from my HDV timeline (HQ), took that frame into Photoshop, open a new 720X480 file, and I drag the frame into the new file and it is so much sharper than the one from the Layout tool, I don't understand why you don't see it, this is weird. btw I did not deinterlaced it because the others are not either, I just want you guys to see it the way it is. I really think there is something wrong with the layout tool.

    Hey good to hear from you, I just try some close up shot, it is better but still look a little noisy and soft at 100%, but the wide shot you can definetly see that it is alot worse, but I don't think that it matters or not if the wide shot is not focus, it should not be worse, it should just be bigger with the same quality and not softer and noisier.
    Here is an example of a wide shot

    Have fun on your next trip and don't be a prey to any animals there (-:

    I am here and leaving next week for a month.....before that work work work...and more work. Khoi, I get good results and have zoomed more than 100% but I haven't done it in a while. I just checked it and it seems fine. What I have found is subjects shot wide that are far away when zoomed in like you are trying show the out of focus problems more so than if you let it live in HD. Try the same thing with a close up where you know the focus is nailed. Also is your pet peave fixed in PC3? I can't get a confirmation from this guy Downey.

    I'm taking advantage of more resolution of HDV clips on a SD timeline, so that I can zoom in more than what my camera can and also reposition a little bit, since it is to be delivered on SD DVD, actually I'm fixing my assistance bad composition framing, too wide and too much overhead. This is the same principle as scanning a large image so you can zoom and pan without losing quality, but it does when using layout tool and it not supposed to because, I'm only zooming in to its original resolution and not more. It looks like you are using 3D PIP and zoom in more than 100%.

    when loading a HDV clip in a SD DV or SD D1 project, there should be no need to use the layout tool at all, unless you are talking 4:3 aspect?

    The source footage is interlaced.

    Is the source footage interlaced or progressive?

    started a topic Layout tool

    Layout tool

    When I use a HDV/Canopus HQ clip in a DV or D1 project, using layout tool and click on original size to 100%, the video will zoom in, that is to be expected when the project is only 720X480, but why is the picture quality is not good, it looks grainy and pixelated, shouldn't I just have a pristine picture?, I'm not zoom in more than the original resolution, but I found that I can only zoom in to about 65% or so, anymore will look bad. Any ideas as to why?
Working...
