When I'm importing 100% HD video onto composite lab pro I'm finding that my video has lost it's HD resolution and is in much poor-er quality resolution. Could anybody please tell me why this is happening and how I can stop it?

When you open up CompositeLab, click on: select video clip, and browse for the file. If the file is HD, then it should come up with it with the correct aspect ratio, quality, and other such things.

What do you mean by 100% HD, exactly?

Is your canvas quality set to Full or Anti-Aliased? If it is set lower, that will force the resolution that is displayed to be reduced, so things can process quicker.

Also, if your project isn't set up in HD, then fitting the footage top the frame would force downsampling and reduce the resolution.

When I meant 100% HD, I meant that the camera I used was 1080p and in imovie in the media browser I turned it into an HD imovie project and I then exported to quick time, it's just that it seems like 360p or 480p when I use composite lab

Thanks Axeman! I set it to anti-alliased and it looks loads better.
