Default Anyone have a way to fill in sidebars?

I've been trying to create the effect that some do to "fill in" the sidebars of a 4:3 in a 16:9 format. It's often seen on new shows where part of the 4:3 image is duplicated and blurred in the sidebars. My results are very time consuming and not that great.

Does anyone have a straightforward way of doing this?
Thanks

Any time I have seen this, it is not just a duplication in the pillar box area. It is usually a zoomed in or a stretched video with a strong gaussian blur that fills the pillar box area.

You can do this by stacking the video on top of itself (2 timeline layers), then on the bottom/background layer, use layouter to fit the X axis either keeping the aspect ratio or distorting as you desire and applying a gaussian blur filter. Keeping the aspect ratio will create the zoomed in type of look, and not keeping the aspect ratio will create the stretched kind of look.

Very quick and easy.

I have this effect premade for you in this Favorites effects.
https://forum.grassvalley.com/forum/...t=36907&page=3
Download, unzip the File, then right click on the Effects folder in the Effects tab, and select import.

It is listed under Hours and us labeled Blurred Wings. Copy the clip above or below itself (click on the clip, drag, hold Control key, and release mouse button before Control key). Then drag and drop Blurred Wings to the bottom clip.

I have made a single drop on effect that creates a blurred background and crops the foreground (assuming that the layout squeezes the image to the right aspect ratio). You don't have to duplicate the video clip this way. Grab it here

Oh and I made tutorial on how to make and use it: https://youtu.be/c1IgJw_omZE
