I have a Mac lab running OS 10.4.11 on all computers and Premiere 3.2.
On nearly every Mac in the lab, when a video clip is viewed in the program monitor, it can be resized or reframed. When I click on video in the program monitor, white crosshairs appear in the center of the video along with click-drag boxes on the outer edge. I can use those tools to resize the video (enlarge or shrink) and move the video around in the window to reframe it. I frequently use this to resize widescreen video to fit into traditional TV size monitor or vice versa.
So, on this one particular computer, this doesn't work. I click on the video in the program monitor and nothing happens. No white crosshairs, no click-drag boxes, no nothing.
What setting, if any, do I need to change in order to make this essential function work again?
Thanks in advance.
Welcome to the fourms.
Click on the clip to select it in the timeline. Then click on the word "Motion" in the Effect Controls Panel and you will get what you want.
You will also find links to many free tutorials in the PremiereProPedia that will quickly show you how things are done in Premiere Pro.
