I'm using clips that were furnished to me as Quicktime movies from several different cameras.
They include H.264 codec at 960x540, and DV/DVCPRO-(NTSC) @ 720x480.
Ideally, I'd like to zoom in to over half the picture. If I've got 3 or 4 people in frame, I'd like to have a close-up of one of them.
The loss of resolution starts occurring fairly quickly, and is quite soft by the time I reach the close-up.
Any ideas about re-formatting the clips or other tips about improving the situation?
(The cameras were all consumer level, unfortunately.)
