    ALL VERTICAL WORKFLOW - IMPORT, EDIT, EXPORT

    I have vertical video (NOT cropped 16x9 footage). Need to edit it vertically, and export it vertically. Should be simple given I can plug in whatever numbers I want into the Source settings. But every attempt to apply a transformation in the source setting results in a cropped output. The source settings window is assuming my footage isn’t what my footage is. My source setting window doesn’t believe me. Crazy that the rotate function insists on cropping it and doesn’t simply rotate the whole frame in the composer window. I’ve scoured the tutorials available and nothing is a good fit. It seem impossible that I can’t find a solution to this. Even Kevin’s tutorial assumes you’d be shooting 16x9 and cropping. NO! Don’t want to do that. Footage is 9x16. Is this possible to simply apply a source setting? Sad if it isn’t.

    Re: ALL VERTICAL WORKFLOW - IMPORT, EDIT, EXPORT

    Did you happen to try to create a custom project with the size needed to see if that makes a difference?

    Re: ALL VERTICAL WORKFLOW - IMPORT, EDIT, EXPORT

    Sorry...should ahave mentioned, it IS a custome project size.

    And the composer windows are vertical (so, good.)

    The only road block is interpreting the footage.

    I got mine working.

    My test was to make a 1080x1920 project

    AMA link a 1920X1080 video.

    The trick was changing the Frame aspect ration in the lower frameflex box to 9:16 then stretching out the frameflex frame in the RH preview. Worked fine.

    RH preview?  I've changed the ratio. But the stretching part does not work it won't let me change the ratio of the box it applies. only smaller or larger.

     

    It really should be simpler than this.

    Re: ALL VERTICAL WORKFLOW - IMPORT, EDIT, EXPORT

    Hello Fish, did you get an answer, how to manage vertical footage filmed in 1080 x 1920? In version 2019.12 this could be done, but don´t ask me how. I have updated today to 2020.4, because the "Whats New" text showed some improvements on this topic, but....my 1080 x 1920 project then started with an "exeption" error, til I deleted my 2019.12 "frameflexed" footage from the sequence. I tried some things out, but I didn´t get it right without strange resizing. Does someone know a nice workflow? The aim is to import, edit and export 1080 x 1920 footage in a 1080 x 1920 project..and it doesn't matter if the playout monitor presents it correctly.

    Thx Armin
