How to know when a scaled layer will lose true resolution

Hi there!  I need help with a math problem, essentially: How much can I scale my layers or comps (expressed in percentage) in After Effects before I've passed the threshold where pixel interpolation…Continue

The 12fps / 24fps conundrum

Started this discussion. Last reply by Geoff Clark Jun 30. 9 Replies

Hi there,  I've got some questions about frame rate (Frames per second). This kind of question makes my head hurt a bit, and I hope I can get some clarity here.  I'm doing a stop-motion film, I use…Continue

"Jasper is partially right. Create your AE comp at 1920 X 1080,  then when you drop your footage into the comp it will go in at 100% scale, which means it spills over the edges. There's a little box at the bottom left of the viewing panel…"

"If I don't want to zoom in or pan around the frame, I just import the full size image (into TV Paint in my case) and scale it down to 1920 pixels wide.  No percentages, just set the dimensions. Don't know if AE can work that way.…"

Jasper Kuipers replied to Geoff Clark's discussion How to know when a scaled layer will lose true resolution

How to know when a scaled layer will lose true resolution

Hi there!  I need help with a math problem, essentially: How much can I scale my layers or comps (expressed in percentage) in After Effects before I've passed the threshold where pixel interpolation will occur?  Here's the details:  I capture all my still images from my DSLR at the size of 2256 x 1504. This size is larger resolution than my largest final destination goal of 1080p, which is 1920 x 1080. So I have some wiggle room to scale up a scene if I need to in post-production.  If you're…See More
