What do you mean by "wide setting"? eg. Lens focal length or resolution?
Your answer determines the workflow.
... forgive my Noob ignorance....
The entire rectangle represents the captured film footage; it was simply shot "too wide".
The red area represents the areas I'd like to cut off, the blue area with the subject is what I want left.
I don't want to resize the blue area/subject matter, I'd like to simply crop the frame down and remove the red areas, effectively resizing the sequence area (currently at 1440X1080). It's going to be used exclusively for web and dropped into a Flash preso.
Thanks so much for your input.
You dont want to resize the subject blue area. O.K
I am guessing you do not want to maintain the 16:9 format.
One way - Create a SD Format and drop the clip into that. (Motion / Scale)
Other things - look at Clip or Crop, Garbage Matte effects.
BG may even Key ...giving you other options to extend the blue
Thanks shooternz, I'll look into crop and clip in particular, as I remember doing this in After Effects....
Tip: Type keyword into the search box on the top of the effects window. (Do not forget to "X" it off once found or else it limits your fx choices later.).
