4:3 clips

Recommended Posts

Once the clip has been dropped into the time line, open the effects window (click the FX icon or EFFECTS in the toolbar) and experiment with the positioning and scale effects.

Hi

In the Position effects panel set the Horizontal value to -12.5 to move the 4:3 frame to the left of the 16:9 window. ( 12.5 to move it to the right hand end of the window.) Obviously you can monitor the exact position if you set it so the chequered area is just covered on whichever side you want the frame.

Hi

Yes, don't use black letters unless you have a contrasting background. Unfortunately the text background option seldom looks right and you would do better to simply write your text in a colour that will be well seen over black and leave the text background transparent.

Write your text to a width and font size suitable, in say, yellow. You can change colour,size and font later if it doesn't fit first time around. When completed it will be added as an image to the clip bin and also placed onto the overlay track whch you should then expand. You can now click the FX button and use POSITION to move it onto the right hand side (or the left) of the frame where when it is to be viewed. Use Sequence Preview to monitor its position. it will appear over the black background.
