Thread: iPhone Portrait mirroring?

  1. #1

    Default iPhone Portrait mirroring?

    Hi,

    So I've seen a regular effect used on YouTube - when showing a portait video or game, instead of having two ugly black bars either side, it will make a blurry copy of the game at the side.

    Can anyone share how exactly this could be done in Sony Vegas?

    0.44 in this video is a gaming example:

    and 0.48 in this real life footage:

    Thanks!

    Track 1 - your footage with black (or more accurately transparent) either side
    Track 2 - same footage, cropped (or distorted if you like) so it fills the screen and blurs added to taste.

    Could you however be alot more specific please?
    Such as - how exactly to make the black sides transparent? And for track 2 - how much to crop and what effects?

    OK. I don't have an iPhone but I do have a Windows phone. Hopefully I can explain how to turn this:



    into this:



    in 3 easy steps.

    Put the clip on your timeline- in Vegas speak you now have one EVENT on a TRACK. You probably have an audio event on another track - we can ignore this
    Duplicate the track (you can do this by right clicking the track header (the left hand end of the track) and selecting - yes, you've guessed it - "Duplicate track"

    You now have two copies of the event. On the evenot on the lower track:
    After duplicating the event, on the lower track:
    1. Open the Pan and Crop window (Click on the little square icon at the right hand end of the track or right click the event ans select "Video Event Pan/Crop" or other method.
    2. Under "Source" change "Mantain Aspect Ratio to "No". If "Stretch to fill Frame" has been left at its default state of "Yes", the image will have been stretched to fill the frame of the project size.
    2.1 (optionally, turn off the "Lock Aspect Ratio button which will allow you to zoom in on the background image)
    3. Drop a Gaussian Blur on the lower event and adjust to taste. (If you don;t know how to do this go to Help, Interactive Tutorials, and select "How to Add Video Effects" under "Editing Video and Still Images")
