More often than not, your original 3D rendering may be the wrong size.
It's too big, or too small.
You can easily change the resolution of the animation in PC Pro. Load
it through the Animation menu, for example if it's an image sequence,
or an AVI file.
Once loaded into memory, PD Pro lets you change the size of the current
image from the menu:
Image > Resample...
If you have more than a single image loaded, i.e. if PD Pro finds that
there's an animation loaded (2 or more frames), then it will apply the
change in dimensions and resampling to all frames.
You can select the desired new dimension from a long list of common
presets, which you can in fact customize. There is a text file
containing the Default Resolutions: Def_Res.txt - it islocated in the
folder where you installed PD Pro.
You can of course enter your unique width and height directly as well.
And be sure to select Bi-linear+ for the sampling mode. We hear it's
When you click "OK", Dogwaffle goes to work. For a few seconds you
might not see much happening, as it re-allocates memory for the new
animation buffers (R,G,B, swap, alpha...). Usually a lot of memory.
Then it starts resampling each frame and copies the new one into the
new buffer. You'll see a progress bar during this process.
Before you do this sort of operation which is immensely memory
intensive, you may want to make sure you have saved a quick dump of the
current animation on file. It would be a shame to loose it without a
handy backup somewhere in case your PC runs out of virtual memory
(which can happen when you deal with very long animations or clips at
HDTV and film resolution)
