    Default Editing Clips of Different formats in CS4: Any ideas please??

    Hey all -

    I'm new to CS4 and to the forum, so any help you can give to a newcomer would be appreciated!!

    As my first project, I said I'd edit my friend's acting showreel. He gave me a bunch of files in .MOV format and some DVDs. I ripped the DVDs to .AVI files.

    Ok, so I import them into Premiere Pro, but I have a problem: it seems that the different clips are of different resolutions: the clips I import from the DVDs come onto the screen looking tiny in comparison the the .MOV files.

    So what's the best way to go ahead? I ripped the DVDs to the highest resolution I could....Is there ANY way that CS4 can match the resolutions to make the frames the same size?

    Any help appreciated!!
    Many thanks
    Bruce

    From memory, if you right click in the smaller res (standard definitiom or SD) clips, you should bring up a context menu with an option 'scale to frame size'. This will expand your clips.

    However, this will mean that your clips become somewhat pixelated in comparison. If your clips are predominantly SD, i suggest converting the HD clips to SD.
