Thread: Rotation followed by a crap - Pro 13

    Default Rotation followed by a crap - Pro 13

    I need to rotate about 1.5 degrees and then crop to remove the black bits.

    Oddly enough there isn't an obvious FX which does this.

    If I use track motion



    that does the rotate fine but then there appears to be no way to crop it. The zoom in the lens correction FX doesn't zoom the whole frame so that is of no use for this. What I need is an FX which does rotation and zoom and would place that at the very end of the FX chain.

    I solved it. The Track Motion does do it. One has to adjust the scale and then move it around a bit.

    Apologies for the spelling mistake in the post title

    If I understand correctly, you want to apply your lens correction FX and then rotate & zoom.

    You can do this to the event with the Pan & Crop tool. "Ah!" I hear you say, "but that applies the Pan & Crop" first and then the FX.

    But I bet you didn't know that you can change this so that the Pand & Crop is applied after the events simply by dragging the Pan & Crop around the events chain at the top of the pan & crop/event FX window:

    And here's another tip.Avoid using track motion for zooming. In something like this where you're only zooming a little it won't make a great deal of difference but it's to do with the way in which things are processed. Zooming in event pan & crop always goes back to the source footage. Zooming in track motion simply zooms whatever has been presented to it by the event windows(which may already have been zoomed)

    Here's an extreme example I made a few years back to demonstrate:

    Do you mean using Video Event FX, instead of Track Motion?



    On a 20-event track I would have to repeat that 20 times.

    You would if you wanted to rotate them all and crop them all exactly the same. Appreciate that in your case this might be true but usually one is correcting individual clips for rotation and/or cropping.

    However, repeating this 19 times (I'm being pedantic ) is really quick and easy, so long as you want exactly the same pan, crop, rotation, and FX on all events.

    • Fix event 1 how you wnat it.
    • Right click on it and select COPY
    • Click on event 2 then shift+click on event 20 to select all clips 2- 19
    • Right-cick on any of the selected events
    • select PASTE EVENT ATTRIBUTES


    Job done!

    (As an aside, one thing Vegas users have been after for years is to be able to selectively choose which FX are copied rather than the all or nothing we have at present. One of the few areas of weakness IMHO)
