Hi,

I have a composition built at 1920x1080. I would like to change it to 1280x720.  Is there a way to do that and also change the layers within the composition porportionally?  I was thinking about creating a null layer and parenting all the layers to the null and resize the null but would that degrade my layers?

Please let me know if there is a easier/more efficient way of resize (downsizing) the compositon without degrading the quality of the composition.


Big thanks.

Select File>Scripts>Demo Palette. This will open a palette in AE with a scale comp button. Simply select your comp in the timeline and click. Use should be easy to figure put.

This is helpful, Rick. Is there a way to do this with out locking proportions. I have a file I need to resize to 900x52.

Thanks!

I hope you know what you are doing. 900 X 52 is not a standard video size. It is highly unlikely that a standard media player will play that file or that you can easily compress it to a common distribution format.

that If you want to use the resize script then pick the new widest dimension, then resize the comp changing only the other dimension. You can the Anchor using the Advanced options in Comp Settings: This may make it easier to resize, realizing that you are going to crop your comp.

It worked!  This saved me hours, and probably also trashing the original composition.  THANK YOU!

Why not put your 1080 precomp into a 720p? Turn on collapse transforms and scale to fit. Should give the same results, no?
