Conform to Sequence Versus Scale to Sequence

The Conform to Sequence command fits a clip into a sequence in three ways: a clip’s
Scale and Aspect Ratio parameter settings are adjusted and a Shift Fields filter is
applied, modified, or deleted. This command ensures that a clip has the proper aspect
ratio and field dominance.

The Scale to Sequence command merely adjusts the Scale parameter of a clip so that
it fits within the sequence dimensions. No aspect ratio or field dominance correction
is applied.
