I have 1080i footage I need to export to custom frame size 350X250 in .flv sorenson H.263. I also want to crop my video (a static head shot) to go tighter on the person's face. I don't want letter boxing though.
I have tried some methods unsuccessfully. I tried resizing the video in my export settings (where I could enter 350X250 values) but this didn't crop the image, and resulted in a 16X9 video letter boxed in a roughly 4:3 frame.
I have also tried setting my sequence to 350X250 and dropping the footage on, but it looks horribly blurred.
On top of this, my client says I must export in 300 Kbps datarate, becasue these videos will not be enlargable in the web player. But they just look blurry, and I wonder is this related to something else, or is it just what you get from 300 kbps?
