so i am in a bind and would love some help.
I have a film im editing. I just spoke to my DP and he told me that the raw RED footage was shot at 1.9 aspect ratio and needs to be letterboxed at 2.39 ratio.
I have been trying to figure out how to do this without using an adjustment layer and cropping down so here i am asking for help.
so the image size is 8192x4320.
its easy enough to add an adjustment layer and crop out 132 bars on top and bottom, or 9.5%.
but i am really hoping there is a more professional and scientific way to do this.
any ideas of how to make this happen?
thank you in advance.
I would probably edit in a DCI Scope sequence (4096 x 1716) and scale the footage to fit.
thank you so much Jim.
