Encoding Settings in HD Projects
Because an HD project can use assets with a wide variety of video resolutions, the Encoder
Settings dialog contains a Resolution pop-up menu that shows the asset’s resolution.
You are also able to change an asset’s video resolution by choosing a setting from the
Resolution pop-up menu.
SD resolution assets (720 x 480i and 720 x 576i) in HD projects can use a bit rate up to
15 Mbps. The Bit Rate setting in the Encoder Settings dialog will not go beyond 15 Mbps
when an SD resolution is chosen.
Encoding an asset at a resolution other than its native resolution may result
in unacceptable artifacts appearing in the video.
