Hope saturday is going swimmingly.
I'm trying to resize a video, more specifically, I'm trying to change the aspect ratio, so I can crop it and use a specific area (minus the black bars of a regular 4:3 ratio) I'm working to make this a full screen flash video, and I'm super n00b at premiere. I'm sure this is either a) Impossible or b) Stupid easy. I'm on a trip, so my internet is in and out, so QBN seemed easier than using the adobe help site.
Anyone care to lend a hand?
a 4:3 ratio doesn't automatically come with black bars.
well, thanks for that. I'll try and make it more simple. I want to crop video. I need to make it something closer to 16:9 for website full screen flash video usage. Is that possible?
what's the width and height of your video now?
you can crop off a certain amount of pixels from the top and bottom, and that will help with the ratio, but of course you lose picture information. or use letterboxing. or resize to 16:9 and live with a video that looks distorted and stretched. or do some clever combination of all of those.
Hmm, I really just need to crop off the top and bottom I guess.
it would help if i knew what size your video is now.
example: 800 x 600
meaning 800 px wide, 600 px high
Usually I prefer use the program VidCrop PRO, it's very simple too for me.
hmmm...well guessing your video will be 720x576 (Standard PAL 4:3) - Just start a 720x576 (16:9 PAL widescreen) project and drop your video into onto the timeline. If you want to crop the black at the side to make it widescreen then just use the 'motion' function to increase the size of the video.
Is this what you mean?
(this is presuming your using PAL (UK) and not NTSC (USA))
As for me,i prefer use VidCrop.It's prog for crop video and also you can use zoom)It's helps me alot.)
