    Quicker way to work with high res images?

    I am working on a documentary that has a bunch of archive images.  I am linking via AMA, dropping that into the timeline, adding pan & zoom, and then pointing again to the source file so that I have the full resolution to work with.  I have to render constantly!  Playback locks up if they aren't rendered, and I have to render them even if I make the slightest change to the edit.

    Any suggestions on a better way to do this?  Thanks.

    I feel your pain, and I'm really not trying to be a jackass. I don't know of a quicker way in Avid, but at least you're not having to shoot stills on an Oxberry and wait for dailies to come back from the lab...

    Hmmm. I haven't tried this. From your post, I take it that the full resolution is maintained when doing this?

    The source was 2048 x 1148.  After linking via AMA, I scaled it up to 200, then I did a corner-to-corner pan.

    That's good news. Didn't know that AMA worked that way.
