    Updating Sequence to 1080p. Help!

    Appreciate any help.  I'm trying to update a sequence from 24p/NTSC to 1080p/24. All original media is 1920x1080.

    I have changed the format tab in the master bin to 1080p/24.  I duplicated the sequence and put it in a new bin.
    I tried batch importing all media, but since some of the media was from mixed-rate, a dialogue box came up and said to decompose the sequence.  I have now done that and put it all in the same bin as the new duplicated sequence.  I have also reimported all cips in 1080p to a new bin.

    Now, here's the problem.

    How do I reconstruct the sequence so all clips are 1080p? And how do I know it's actually been accomplished?

    Any help would be appreciated.  I feel I may have really mseed up the sequence.

     

    I am operating MC 5.0 on a PC.

    Open up a new project with your new settings, go to " open bin " and open up your old bin with the duplicated sequense, render it

    Thanks, mjolnarn!  I've done that and the sequence opens fine, BUT, the clip names in the timeline are not the name of the new imported clips in the bin.  As you know, when you batch import it adds NEW at the end of the file name.  None of the clips have been updated name NEW in the sequence.  Any further suggestions?

    Just use your old origin project and your old origin clips, you should not batch import your old clips into your new project, just use your old sequense as it is without any changes done to it, I just converted a Pal project to Ntsc this way for a BD Ntsc disc production

    Re: Updating Sequence to 1080p. Help!

    Again, thanks.  But, when I originally imported the clips, they imported SD, not HD.  Now, I have created a new project with  HD settings and need to reimport the clips HD, don't I?  That's what I did, but the sequence is still playing the SD clips.  Hope this makes sense.  I've been doing this for awhile and I can;t seem to figure this one out.

    Avid will upscale the project for you from SD to HD according to your project settings
