Please help,
On visionlab, i am importing high res videos and they are appearing pixelated when imported. I would like to know how you can change the quality of what you import.

Many thanks,
Alex smile

Have you tried to change the scale ?

It's possible o change the quality with the movie's settings, click right on the video when you import your video, and "media properties".
And try the differents settings of the "Scan method" as "progressive" or "deinterlace" or "Interlaced". It can probably edit the quality of your video. I've tried on my videos and the quality is better.

What is the canvas quality? Try high under the canvas tab at the top.

True!

"Wes the fxhome dude" gives you a good commentary.
Use the setting "full" which is in the canvas tab. All the details are on your video when you are on "full".

Make sure that you use the correct resolution when you create your project. This could be a factor, but it does sound more like your canvas quality is set a bit lower. This is often useful for speeding up the process of moving around and editing things in the program, but if you need to see a more accurate representation of your footage, the higher settings are there for that. More information about the canvas settings is available in this knowledgebase article: Qualty in the program is poor. How do I improve it?

There is also the Hi-Q button which will give you a full-quality render of the current frame.
