Big size jpeg gets smaller in Fusion

PostThu Mar 11, 2021 10:17 pm

Hello everyone,

I'm facing a problem with Fusion in Da Vinci Resolve.
I work with jpeg files that are 4240 x 2832 px. I have absolutely no problem importing them in the edit table since they are automatically resized to fit the frame (with black spaces on both sides but that's expected). I can just adjust the size afterwards in color, that's not a problem at all.
However, when I try to edit the jpeg files in Fusion, the picture takes only a portion of the frame, with empty canvas space all around. And when I try to import in the edit table the picture processed in Fusion, it is still the small version exactly as it appears in the preview window of Fusion.

Thank you for your help.

Regards,

Julien

You probably need to use a Loader instead the media in, to bypass the weird scaling and resolution changes that Resolve Fusion does. If you use a Loader to import the file, Fusion will import the image in the full resolution.
You probably need to merge that image onto a background with the desired resolution to get it back into the edit page with the right aspect.

I personally don't even know why they handle the resolutions so weird in the Fusion Page. The biggest feature about Fusion Studio/Standalone is that it's so good with high resolutions and mostly resolution independent. Yet the Fusion page does all kinds of weird things when importing stuff.

I've recently seen someone who was using 6k footage in a UHD timeline. In Fusion the resolution was still 6K but it was scaled down to UHD with borders on each side. Nobody expects this and I don't know why this happens. Either it should be in timeline resolution or it should import the full resolution without scaling the image down. Very frustrating, especially as a long(ish) time Fusion user this behaviour seems completely illogical.

Thanks for your answer.
I found the solution to the problem of weird crop / change of scale or size of the clip / picture when going from the timeline to Fusion.

The thing is, I just went from the timeline to fusion by clicking on the fusion icon. Bad move! It is CAPITAL to right-click on the clip we want to edit in fusion and select "New fusion clip". Then again right click and "Open in fusion page". This way, the conversion from the timeline to Fusion is perfect.
