I'm having a lot of trouble with FCP 7 at the moment and can't find the answer anywhere online.
Let me explain
I shot full HD 1920 x 1080 25fps footage on my Canon 6D. I knew I wanted to adjust the framing slightly in post so brought the footage into a 720p Apple Pro Res 422(LT) sequence.
Theoretically the 1080p footage is much larger and therefore I should be able to adjust the scaling without loosing quality. This is where I hit a snag. I drop the footage into my timeline. I get the usual message of 'Would you like to change the sequence settings to match the clip', I click 'no'. So I now I have 1080p footage scaled at 66.7% in my 720p timeline. When I then scale the footage back up to 100% to adjust my framing the footage becomes slightly blocky. WHY!!!!
Am I missing a step here?
When I do the exact same process in AE the theory works fine and the footage looks great.
Any ideas would really help
