Crop and export to specific width - CS5

Sep 23, 2013 12:58 PM

Tags: #export #crop #resize

Hi,

 

I have a project ready to export except that I need to crop it top and bottom.

 

OK - I can do that.

 

But now I want to specify a new width but can't because 'resize' is grayed out.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Michael

    It's a bit hard to decipher what you're trying to do.

    Can you post a screenshot?

    check your sequence settings. the bars you want to put up and down, can be done with exporting your video in 16:9, and then try to place it in a 4:3 sequence. right click in ur video in timeline and select "scale to frame size". if i have understand correctly this should work for you.

    You can create a custom sized Sequence in Premiere,

    and do your crops in the Timeline if needed.

     

    File > New > Sequence > General Tab > Desktop

    You can input any dimensions, etc. you want.

    Choose a different format.

    I am assuming he chose FLV / F4V on purpose.

    Different formats offer different options.

    I just checked several of them and none offer what I'm looking for.

    What exactly is your desired export aspect ratio?

    480 X WHAT?

    Are you suggesting, starting the project from scratch.

    Nope.

    I created a custom Sequence using the 'Desktop' setting: 480x265

    Your image, no crops in Media Encoder, viewing 'Output' tab.

    FLV | F4V export setting: 480x233:

    .

    You can nest your original Sequence into the 'Desktop' setting Sequence.

    So what did I do wrong?

    Your original sequence is 720x480.

    You want to export at 480x(something).

     

    You will need to down scale to accomplish this.

     

    You were trying to do it as you export... without success.

    Now you can down scale your nested Sequence before export.
