    How do I blow-up the image size of the entire sequence?

    Hi,

    I have finished editing a film, but one thing is left. I have to enlarge the image of the movie by 10%. I was wondering if there is a way of applying this to the whole sequence at once, rather than doing it one by one to every little piece of cut out piece of clip.

    while I am at it, I might also ask if an effect in the palette is the best choice, or exporting it and doing it in some external program like "after effects" is better? what would be the difference?

    Thanks in advance,

    Kezzap

    Add a new blank track (CMD+Y) then apply the Resize effect to the empty Filler.  Scale the effect up to 110.  Boom 10% increase.  

    Note though that your image quality is going to degrade by 10% by doing this.  Exporting and sending to After Effects will not serve any gain.

    If you want to stay inside Avid to do it, create a blank filler video track above you current sequence of images and from the "blend" group of effects, apply a 3D warp template to it. Adjust scalability to enlarge and it will apply globally to the entire sequence. 10% is not a lot to enlarge, but you'll need to decide whether any softening of the image is acceptable or not. If not, taking it into After Effects would be a good alternative. Depending on the length of the film and the resolution used, rendering time could be long.

    Selecting the HQ button on the 3D Warp will process the resize at sub-pixel level and so should yield better results. The resulting increase in render time might make you wonder if it is worth it however....

    Keep in mind that all of these suggestions will keep your frame size as it is in Avid.  You're just blowing up the picture and cropping off the information around the edges.

    If you need to increase the comp size, you'd have to use a third-party program like AE.

    Starting with MC 6 , this have been greatly improved, not so much difference in render speed any longer
