Starting to get the hang of SpeedGrade and attempting to take the next step--relinking to R3Ds for grading instead of just grading the ProRes422 proxies I use for edit. The question is, when I import my EDL into SpeedGrade and link to the R3Ds instead of the QT files, my clip sizes are all over the place--5k files are now huge and 2k are small. Wasn't an issue in Premiere since everything got scaled down to 1080 when I created the QT files with RedCinex. Now I've linked back to the R3Ds, which are all different resolutions. After I grade and render the sequence out to ProRes, frame sizes are all over the place within the 1920x1080 movie that is created. Is there some kind of "scale to fit" option in SpeedGrade that I'm not seeing? How do I lock my sequence as 1920x1080 and make the shots scale to fit?
In the future, is a better workflow to export ProRes422 proxies at their native resolution and scale them to 1080 in Premiere? Then when I send the EDL to SpeedGrade the scaling info will transfer over and the clips will all show up the same size? (one less variable when I reconnect to the R3Ds)
