  • Strategies / Tips for Reframing 4K?

    I've got a lot of UHD footage that I'll be dropping into an HD timeline. Most of this will be cropped / zoomed / panned. I'm assuming I'll be using the layouter to do this, but I'm wondering if there's an effective way to manage the workflow?

    Specifically, is there any way to simultaneously view both the cropped version and the original? Kind of like the way Photoshop handles non-destructive crops: you can toggle between seeing the entire image with the cropped-out area ghosted to grey, or switch to viewing only the crop.

    My sense is that with the layouter I'll have to click into each layouter effect to see the pre-cropped original and to make adjustments. Is that the case, or is there an effective workaround or setting I'm missing? Thanks.

    If you are using multiple effects and want to see them off and on, you might try using Transform instead of Layouter. Use a separate Transform for each effect and hen you can check/uncheck the Transform in the Information tab.

      As a workaround you could double-click the clip in the bin to make it show up in the player/source window without crop/pan/zoom. On the recorder/program window you will see the file with crop/pan/zoom.

      However, I would rather go for the transform effect as described in the first answer. Depends on your workflow and the amount of clips.
