I haven't purchased LumaFusion yet since I'm still evaluating it for my needs. One feature I love in FCPX is that I'm able to take a video shot in 4k and use a 1080 timeline. Because the timeline is 1080p but the resolution of the video is 4k, I can pop in on a clip at anytime by zooming in since I have extra resolution to play around with. This simulates using more than one camera and allows for more flexible editing while keeping the simplicity of using just one camera.

Can you do this on LumaFusion? Shoot in 4k, create a 1080p timeline, and zoom in up to 4k when needed? This is of course assuming the output of the 4k video will be in 1080P which is more than enough resolution for me and a worthy tradeoff off for the zoom flexibility.

Hi rishio

Yes you can because the timeline is resolution independant

I do this often. I have a drone that shoots in 4k and I render the output at 1080p (because my TV doesn't go any higher)

Than means I can use the 'resolution' to give a fake zoom or if I've not flown exactly over what I wanted to I can 'move/resize the frame' to get the subject where I want it

You can copy and save the 'properties' of a clip and app those properties to other clips by creating your own 'presets'

Having said all of that it will become easier still in the future as one or two of us have requested fixed zoom sizes that can be applied

So, yes, buy it and don't forget to review it!

.. the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few ... or the one
