Thread: Zooming In Sony Vegas????

  1. #1

    Default Zooming In Sony Vegas????

    I have lots of videos I want to edit. What I want to do is focus on one person in the video, but when I pan/crop into the person I get big black borders down the side. Is there anyway of focusing on one person in the video whilst still having a full screen without the black bars.

    thanks a lot.

    Two possibilities.
    1. Make sure you click on the "position" line in the timeline rather than "mask" (so the buttons down the left hand side DON'T show the pen nib icons)
    2. Make sure the lock aspect ratio button (5th one down left hand side) is depressed. This ensures that cropping occurs in equal proportions top/bottom and left/right. If you don't do this the cropped image will be a different shape to the screen and hence you'll get black bars.
    (Note: the "mask" feature by design will always leave borders (or cut out the masked portion - so for this exercise you do NOT want "mask" cheked)

    Glad to help. If you don't click on mask you don't need to understand it. But one day perhaps you'll get great joy from using it

    Got another problem.

    Once I've zoomed the video when I play it back the picture keeps drifting off to the right.

    Any ideas why?

    thanks.

    Sounds like you have a rogue Key frame moving the action around. Do some careful, close investigation of ALL key frame timelines - you'll find it.

    Grazie

    It may also be keyframe ' smoothness' - appears in track notion box. Set to 100% and this appears to make 'virtual pans' move as if h held rather than in a straight line - try setting to 0% - I bet that is something to do with this.

    Looked at the track motion it has it at 0 already. It still pans across the video instead of just staying in one place.

    Its driving me mad.

    Any ideas?
