In my first attempt at wide-angle filming on my Canon XM2 (0.5x Red Eye Lens), I am generally pleased with the results in the large, spacious areas of my interiors - but closer shots are a different story.
The 'barrel' effect is very noticable in some shots, particularly in those with straight lines! (Such as door frames).
I use the old Liquid Edition 6 because I am familiar with it, though I am capable of upgrading to Avid Xpress Pro in the near future.
Can I fix the 'barrel' effect on my footage within either of these editing packages, hopefully Liquid Edition? Or can any other editing software or gadget do it for me?
Nearest thing I can find is the 'Magnify' effect in Liquid, which I have used to create a barrel-like effect in the past. However after fiddling with the settings, i cannot seem to get it to 'invert' (or apply a 'pincushion' effect) to reduce bulging of the image and 'bring it in' from the centre. There seems to be no way to rotate the effect itself by 'turning the magnifyer over'.
Any help, or suggestions much appreciated.
