Nesting to custom size- whoops

For the PPro gurus...

So now I have my five-minute sequence for two custom screens, Screen A and Screen B. This is the client preview format, 1920 X 1080, masked as a pair to reflect their custom screens.

Now they want to test their Christi projectors on an actual frame size.

1) I nest one half of the pair.

2) I place it in a new sequence of 1920 X 1200.

3) It's cropped within the sequence. Okay, I load the Crop tool onto the nest bar.

4) Nope.

5) Using Effect Controls I enlarge the entire frame.

6) Nope, still stuck in a crop.

I used to be able to do this in Final Cut Pro 7 in SECONDS.

My only workaround appears to be to resize all the shots individually.

If that's the case, Premeire Pro CC is NOT ready for primetime....

Best, as always.

I must be a Pro Guru! I figured it out!

I'm nesting in the wrong place. When you need to move sequence clips to a custom screen dimension...

1) copy the sequence clips OUT of the original timeline- do NOT nest there.

2) Paste the clips into the custom timeline.

3) Create nest there.

4) Size to suit new screen dimensions using Effect Controls.

Works fine. Life is good again.

Best, as always.
