    First Project Settings

    Where do you change the timeline project settings, eg 1920x1080 or 720x576 etc ?

    Apparently you set the format when you first drag your clip on to the timeline, a dialogue box appears.

    The format tab doesn't appear to allow you to change the format from what you already have set.

    I'm sorry, but I haven't used MC First, so I can't tell you for sure. In the full version, you set the format when you initially create the project.

    After that, once you are in the project, the format tab allows you to change the format within the same FPS. So if you're in a 1080i/59.94 project, you can switch to a 30i NTSC project, but not a 25i PAL project.

    Re: First Project Settings

    Related to this, does anyone know a way to change the frame-rate after you have accepted the setting?  I chose the wrong frame-rate in the auto dialog which came up and couldn't find a way to go back.  Ended up creating a new project.

    This only works if you're changing from one format/frame rate within the same base rate. For example, if you're switching from one 25 FPS format to another, you can do it in the format tab, but you can't change from a 25 FPS format to a 24 FPS format.

    Depending on what you needed to change, this may have been the best choice.
