I'm trying to take footage that was shot at 2048x1080 and crop it down to 1920x803 for a 2.39 finish with an overall center crop finish
I applyed a custom w2.39 h1 crop in a new adustment layer with the pan and scan tool.
Then I manually adjusted the scale in the pan and scan options to proportionally increase by 1.066667 ( to factor for the center crop)
Now I go to export, and under the framing options, I choose
full image (no Proxy)
Same size as proxy
And my footage renders out at 2048x857 (which is the correct aspect ratio) but I cant seem to force it down to 1920x803...
Ive tried 1080p, but that only letterboxes the image.
Am I overthinking this? Should I just use that as an oversampled image?
Thanks so much for you help!
Sorry I dont have more of a detailed answer for you. I invested a lot of time into this that weekend and havent looked back into it since.
I dont think I was ever successful. I believe I just took that 2048x857 file, brought it into finalcut pro 7, then just batch exported them at the correct aspect ratio...
I know thats not ideal, but I just found the lack of control in speedgrade difficult to work with. Let me know if you figure anything out yourself.
