      Looking to re compose an image (clip) in Premier Elements 13.  By moving the  image either  up or down and keeping the top and bottom black letterbox in the same location.

          On what computer operating system is Premiere Elements 13/13.1 running? What is your image - still or video?

           

          More on this in the morning morning.

           

          For now...assuming you have a 16:9 project preset to match 16:9 source media....

           

          a. See Expert workspace fx Effects/Transform/Crop and edit crop under Applied Effects Tab/Applied Effects Palette/Crop Panel expanded.

           

          b. Besides the crop, what is with the pan and scan...is the intent to pan across the image (with its top cropped off and the remainder positioned at the top of the 16:9 frame? Could you explain further what goes where in your plan?

           

          Thanks.

            AT,

            Yes I am shooting 16 X on either my GH-2 or using my Canon HF-30.I have experiences with using the Sony Vegas Video Project, but when my program was lost with a major computer crash, and my  original discs from Vegas are being stored in the other side of the state, I thought  I  would  give Premier a try.  I have been using Photoshop for years and have owned new copies since 2005. 

            I shoot in 16x9, and create a more Cinematic look by letter boxing my projects.

            I have not found the  answer or workaround yet, my may  have to do some of my projects in Vegas.

              In the light of day, I think I have zero'ed in on your goal. Let us see. Right now, I am interpreting your question as "How to create a cinematic/letterbox look for your 16:9 video in a Premiere Elements 16:9 project?"

               

              Consider...this example

               

              Premiere Elements 13/13.1 Expert workspace.

              Video Track1/Audio Track 1. Source video.

               

              Open Project Assets and go to its Panel Options Icon under which is a New Item category.

              Under New Item, select Black Video. Create two Black Video Timeline files, one for Video Track 2 and the other for Video Track 3.

              You are going to Scale the height (as wanted) for each Black Video file so that one will be a black band for the top of the frame and the other will be a black band for the bottom of the frame.

              (To do this, for each Black Video file, select it, go to Applied Effects Tab/Applied Effects Palette/Motion Panel expanded and remove the check mark next to Constrain Proportions under Scale and Position area. This way you can Scale height separately._

               

              With this setup, you can highlight/select the video and move it up or down to control what is seen between the two black bands.

               

              Please review and consider. Please let us know the outcome. I have not yet targeted in on what you seek, please give more details.

               

              Thank you.
