Image sizes shrank! Both on the preview window and in the final/rendered movie was created by dtinay

Dear Derek,

I could not figure out what I am doing wrong. I hope you will help me solve this problem.
Today, I updated my Movie Studio Platinum 16 (142). I started a new project. Uploading the image files, I dragged them to "picture in picture" timeline. To my surprise -unlike the previous projects- on the preview window the images were really small. I thought this -for whatever reason- was due to the updated version. But after rendering the movie, I found out that the final product also consisted of all shrunk images :( I am really upset. Is it because I am doing something wrong, or is it due to this updated version?

Thank you

Dilek.

Hi Dilek

Don't worry !!!
I think I can guess what you have done wrong.

Please upload a copy of your .vf Vegas project file to the forum.
The project file does not contain any video, but it will show me you settings.

Also tell me which "time stamps" I should be looking for on your timeline.
Meaning, where in the project are the problems located ?

Regards
Derek

Hi Derek,

You are wonderful!

I am not sure if I understand the "timestamps" concept correctly, yet the problem is all over the project. As you will see, there is no one single image appearing properly/fully on the preview window; all of them are in small size.

Thank you in advance,

Best regards

Dilek

Probably because of using the PIP track which has the PIP FX applied. This catches many out. I wish Magix didn't do this as it's not helpful to many.

Hi Ericlnz,

You may have noticed, I am a new bee. If you simplify what you are saying, is the problem something curable?

Thanks

Move the clips to another track or go into the Track FX button in the track header on the left and remove the FX or untick it to mute it.

Derek will no doubt confirm, if my suspicions are corrrect, when he views your vf and he's much better than me at explaining what you need to do.

Eric is correct !

The Picture in Picture track is designed only for placing videos or pictures, that you would like to scale smaller and normally position in one of the corners of the video frame.



Double-click Picture-in-Picture on your timeline.
This opens the control box for picture in picture.
If you change the Scale setting to 1.000, this will fix your problem immediately.



The better approach when starting a new project, is to delete the Picture in Picture track if you don't need to use it.
Instead, add a New Video Track.
Hold down the CTRL + SHIFT keys and then press Q - this creates a new plain video track.
Hold down the CTRL key and then press Q - this creates a new plain audio track.
You can add as many as you need.

Ericlnz,

That worked! Oh, what a relief! I unticked the Fx and images appeared as normal in the preview window.

Thank you!
