Hi to everyone.
I am using Avid Media Composer 4.0.5 and I have footage that I shot on a Sony DSR 500 and captured 1:1. I wasnt able to continue editing on that machine, so I exported the media files and aaf files, which I imported into my Avid at home.
Now my machine at home doesnt quite cope with that, playback isnt great, and I want to edit at a lower resolution, but how do I go about it?
Recapturing from tapes at lower resolution seems like an idea, but I havent got access to a tape deck where I could do that.
When I import the aaf file, I choose a lower resolution, but I think because the media files are already at 1:1 thats what it goes with.
I am going to try to remove the media files I have and import the aaf files again, and see if that solves it, otherwise I’d appreciate any help, advise, hints, etc.

The simplest way to go about this is select all your master clips and choose Clip->Transcode, then transcode your 1:1 mediafiles to a resolution of your choice.

Alright, I’m gonna try that.
The way I solved it, but this is a workaround, is by exporting a QuickTime reference file, and then importing this file, as 420 resolution. It then creates those mediafiles, and I delete the old ones at 1:1.
Thanks for your help!
