Hi, total newbie to the world of video, and am struggling with a new project. We are a photography company and are shooting some model video as part of a clients product sets, we have shot the video on a canon 5dmk2 and the output is MOV file.
the problem so far
the video needs to be rotated and cropped, and the green screen keyed out.
Green screen not a problem, rotating and resizing is !
Using imovie for example i have rotated the video, but the crop is wrong, if i crop it then try to rotate it all goes pete tonge.
What I want is a portrate video from a landscape one, then convert it to SWF for displaying on the t'internet.
My outputs always have BLACK lines down the side which for the life of me I cannot get out !
Any help appreciated, also anyone in Bolton can provide training to get this done at speed we wold be willing to pay (very well)
I'm not familiar with imovie, I've always used PCs. BUT if you rotate the video you will need to re-set the correct aspect ratio for the rotated clip. ie wide screen 16:9. The do the cropping. Shooting video with the camera on it's side is not a good idea.
