Editing SD and HD in one project

I have SD and HD files that I'd like to combine in one project. I have two video tracks - one for SD and other for HD files, but I'd like to edit and then render them to SD 4:3 fomat; if we had pan/crop button in video track that we could switch etire video track to 16:9 format that would be great and so easy. But we don't. Now I have to click every single HD file (100+ of them) manually to switch to 16:9. It is insane. Am I missing something; is there any other easy way to switch entire HD video track from 16:9 to 4:3??? It must be....

If you're not doing a multicam edit so still have seperate video tracks then do this
>crop the first clip to how you want it
>on that cropped clip right click
>copy
>right click again, select events to end, all clips on the track are now highlighted
>put mouse on a highlighted/uncropped clip
>right click
>paste event attributes

That'll do it.

Hallo dear friend of mine,hoping not bother you with my question:
I put on the timeline my 85% of HD footage on the upper track,on the lower track i put the SD 4:3 footage;now i want to render in PAL DV §Widescreen ok?Is it correct to open my project with HD settings 1080 50i(Pal) if i want to render in pal dv wide (SD)?
What about the black lines (of the SD footage)that appear after i crop in 16:9?
The sd footage have it(cause 4:3),but the HD footage don't!Could you give me any suggestions?
thx

Hi Marcus.

Project preferences should match most of your footage so yes, use the HD settings for project prefs.

Cropping SD footage into 16:9 shouldn't leave any black bars, the SD footage will have bars at the sides before you crop but not after, the SD should fill the screen after cropping.
On the SD footage, hit the pan and crop icon, the pan and crop window opens, at the top on the right, open the little drop down list, 16:9 should be there.
This video hlink below is SD and HD mixed together, no bars anywhere.

Hey Paul, u were right!What about if i wanna use the 16/9 upper e lower black line?Should i use a black solid with media generator?


Another quest:I saw your video,verycool!Have you ever thought to use those plugins(Instant HD from Redgiant) to resize the SD footage to HD?

Last question about project settings in the mix of HD and SD: Full-resrend quality:Good
Motion Blur :gaussian
Deinterlace method: None
Let me know if u think they r right!
thx a lot,have a nice weekend
