I have a pretty simple problem, but I can't seem to solve it.
I am using a Canon GL1.
It has the 16:9 mode that stretches out for post 16:9 editing, and obviously I cannot have a correct visual reference.
So I shot the entire documentary at 4:3 regular format, but with physical electric tapes to crop for 16:9 (which I got from inputing a widescreen format movie on the camcorder LCD) or imagine the 16:9 in my head through the eye piece.
Those were not real problems..
My biggest problem is at Adobe Premiere Pro editing.
I have created two black bars to see how the footage crops on screen.
Everything looks awesome, just the way I wanted!
I will be creating this in 16:9 on DVD with this 4:3 DV footage.
I do not want to put two graphic black bars on top and bottom with 4:3 format.
All preimere widescreen format is built to work with the camera 16:9 stretch technique.. (which I didnt use..)
I just want to truly crop my 4:3 to 16:9
where there is just nothing on top and nothing at the bottom. (not creating black bars)
Smaller file and for 16:9 TV
I tried to swtich format from (outputing to DV) to (video for windows)
Video for windows is the only option that allows dimension size change.
example 720 X 480 to 720 to 300?
But with this method, I cannot output to DV quality or it gets compressed and modified in so many ways...
I have also read up on
I have a lot of footage to be edited, and all of them needs some cropping adjustment vertically to crop properly..
Should I create the entire final with top and bottom graphic bars then go to TMPGenc?
Would it change the quality of my footage in anyway?
I can't begin my editing...
Help <:( ?
