    grid on record monitor for resizing?

    Hi,

    I have c.600 photos of an animal's head that I want to resize uniformly, and wondered if it is possible to impose a grid on the record monitor to make this easy.  The 600 photos of an animal's head were taken over three years, and because each day it its own hand-held shot, in each JPEG the animal's head is slightly here, there and everywhere.  At the moment, everything is AMA-linked ad I intend to CC and resize all before performing a video mixdown/time lapse.  This will be ardous - but no matter.  It's just that for the resizing it would be useful to impose a grid so then I would have 'markers' to co-ordinate from.

    Please advise,

    DC

    Why not put one of the phots on V2 and set the transparency to 50% ( or thereabouts), and put each new photo on V1 and resize to that.

    Alternatively, use the title tool to draw a grid based on one standard photo.

    Brilliant.  Basic dumb question, I know, but which is best and you recommend for the 50% transparency fx?

    I'd use the 3d Warp. It includes both opacity (it's called "foreground" in the effect) and resizing parameters in the same effect.

    If Avid has not removed it, and it might only be a film-based project, but in the Paint effect, if you open the UI a bit there is a preset “target” icon. Clicking this will add a target to the image that the user can move around (and animate if needed). This can be put on the top track and used as a pixel/region based marker. For example over where the eyes should be. By the same token, the user could create a square or oval with the paint tool to define where the head is, etc.
