Is there a way of cropping ( resize the comp.) where you can ask for a specific region , instead of what AE now does when resizing a comp, to take the middle of the comp, and than you have to replace your footage because it is out of the screen.
My ( precomp) footage is in one side of the comp, and i have a lot of blanc space on the other side.
Because of a render problem which says:Transform Cannot allocate a buffer largerthan 30000 pixels in either dimension error
. I want to remove the blanc space so the pixel buffel gets smaller.
BUT because AE takes the middle with resizing a comp. i have to replace the footage, and my whole animation gets a mess because the position & ancor points dont fit any more....
O yah, and one time it DID render the whole comp. ( prob. because the buffer was empty ... or something ), and with restarting everything, it works longer. But i cannot risk editing further because i dont have time to redo everything when finished ...
Hope it makes sence to someone !
