    Thanks again for all the tips! We will probably re-shoot but these other options are good to know.

    Thanks again.

    Good to hear from you again Mike. I agree that probably the best would be to reshoot. You also might look at EDIUS X for future work. The new Anchor mode in the Layouter/Transform Auto Tracking might work in this kind of situation.

    Thanks for all the ideas!

    I think I have found how to disable the auto-focus and auto-exposure on the phone camera so I will most likely just shoot it again when I have time. But it's good to know the possibilities of these other methods to tweak the video if necessary.

    Thanks again.

    Shoot it again - or you could spend some time in...

    1. Layout editor rotate 180.
    2. Layout editor zoom factor with keyframes.
    3. 3 Way color corrector auto pick BGW balance with keyframes - you can mask parts of it and stack the effect if you have to.

    "This annoying factor kills the video."

    I think you answered your own question!

    It seems the easist thing to do is reshoot with a real video camera.

    Ancient Edius User Questions

    Howdy folks! It's been a long, long time. I'm an ancient Edius user who is very, very rusty. My business slowed way down a while back but I still have my equipment and my Edius 7.53.10 software (I really miss working and working in Edius!).

    Anyway... I am trying to help my wife with a talking head video that she needs to do. I have shot the video on a tripod using the camera of my Android phone and overall, it looks remarkably good. But I think I have screwed up the camera work because there are a couple of problems and I will need to re-shoot it I think. I figured the folks here could confirm my suspicions or point me to some Edius methods of making it better.

    1. The phone video is upside down. When I brought the MP4 clip into Edius, the video is flipped vertically and horizontally. I used the 'Mirror' video effect to return the video to normal. I assume this is the best way to do this?

    2. As the video plays on the timeline, the video size (zoom level?) seems to change slightly throughout the video. This annoying factor kills the video. Instead of the video being locked down and un-changing in size, it is constantly zooming in or out very slightly. I'm assuming this is a product of the auto-focus of the camera not being turned off when shooting? Is there any other way to fix this in Edius without re-shooting?

    3. As the video plays on the timeline, the lighting changes slightly throughout. It is near windows and it is bright and sunny outside and trees are moving during the video. I'm assuming that the automatic white balance setting of the camera is causing this changing and that I will need to re-shoot? Don't suppose there is any way in Edius to fix this problem.

    Thanks for any ideas!
Working...
