I am having an issue with a video that I am adding effects to. The video is clear when I import it, but when I drag it on to a composition, it gets blurry.
- Your resolution is on a third
- But most importantly, your video is 720 x 480 resolution but on a 1920 x 1080 timeline (so it seems), so you are scaling it to fit (you can't make up for a lack of resolution but upscaling your footage).
To get the right comp size, you can:
- Drag your video file onto the little film icon to the immediate left of the 8 bpc selector below your footage tree
- Or create a new composition based on the dimensions of your footage
There is no real point in making 480 footage 1080, it will not increase the quality.
