In the middle of a project or a vision if you like. Decided to settle and use Sony vegas pro 10, after dabbling with pinnacle a bit. Used the tutorial videos on youtube, so I'm up to speed to a certain degree. It's a real hit of technology and capability, but I hope I know enough to carry out my vision.
Wondering if some of the members know anything about cropping? When I imported the video the outcome was a green/red hue on the right hand side of the screen throughout. Not much but enough to disrupt the eye. The bottom had like what could resemble a squashed peice of the film, again not much. This could have happened for many reasons. The original was 8mm tape, which I recorded through a dvd recorder onto disk. The outcome of which was good on the normal television, but no matter what I tried with property settings etc this is the way it would always come out. I tried very hard to match the capture formats, and vegas helped with a pop-up when I was rendering the video from the disk - the settings where different and I ticked the box for vegas to match these up.
Anyway I can't think of anything to make this right and I've put it down to an old camcorder tape and old aspect ratio's.
This brings me to my question. When I crop in sony vegas I only want to cut the right and bottom sides. It's bad loosing this but the top and left hand side are lost also. Is there a way in vegas to just crop the right and the bottom sides?
As a secondary question, just thought of it. Is there a way to find out the details of the footage I have on the disk so I can match the properties better for vegas to import? For some reason though I feel I'm left with this blurred problem.
Hope someone can help with the cropping issue.
It would be a huge help. Even to know that vegas only crops the way it has been presented to me already.
Thanks for any help.
