I’m using 21.01.29 and I’ve just gotten some pretty bad output and don’t know where the problem lies.
First, is it possible to determine with certainty that the original videos made into proxies are getting picked up during render? It’s just so bad. The output is so bad, I have to wonder.
Second, the video with the lowest resolution is 640 x 360. So, when I render out, I am choosing the size of the other videos 1920 x 1080. But even the videos that are actually at at 1920x1080 look like the proxy output.
I’ve uploaded a pic of the render settings I’ve chosen.
To answer your question more directly, you have 2 choices.
Right click the export job, choose View XML, and look at the filenames in there.
Turn off proxy and check each clip to see if it says “PROXY” in either Properties or the Timeline (or Playlist if not using Timeline). If you are using the Timeline to review this, then you probably need to zoom in some so each clip shows its name.
Yes. But… if you change the frame rate, some gaps could form in the timeline. If you change the resolution, there might be a handful of filters that need to be adjusted to the new resolution. (This may have been fully fixed by this point, I’m not sure.)
Basically… it’s best to do everything right the first time and start with the proper video mode.
