Thread: Flash effect on widescreen video

    Default Flash effect on widescreen video

    Hi. I'm editing a widescreen video in which I intend to include some flashing effects. The problem I am facing is that the black bars flash as well the picture which really does not look good. Any tips on how to avoid flashing the black bars and only the picture? Thanks

    Have you tried using the pan/crop tool, I don't know if it will work but its worth a try.

    What about masking the part over the black bars, I have not tried the things I'm suggesting, just brainstorming.

    Yeah, masking the black bars with cookie cutter maybe the solution...I remember using cookie cutter to be quite fiddly though... Also, inserting a frame of white using the media generator and cut using pan/crop to just the size of the picture could work.

    Keep Spitballing it and you'll eventualy come up with something thats will work, the nice thing about vegas is you can do things in so many ways.

    What black bars? If you are editing a widescreen project, there are no black bars.

    Set the properties of your white media to the same aspect as your video project. Then if you have black borders, the white will be contained inside them.
