There's some super 8 4:3 footage that Ive imported into a 16:9 timeline with various 16:9 clips. I wasn't happy with the composition of one of the super 8 shots (too much empty space on the right) so I used the cookie cutter tool to crop the right hand side, making the picture narrower. I don't mind that so much but the dilemma is that the right black 'pillar' is now considerably thicker than the left. Ive gone into Crop / Event / Pan and dragged the picture left and right but that only moves the picture and the left black 'pillar.' The right 'pillar' remains unchanged. Is there anything else that I could try to get both 'pillars' even in width / thickness?
After you click on the Pan/crop, right click on the video event with the dotted lines around it.
Then click on "Match Output Aspect". Then I think you'll be able to resize the event (clip) the way you want it.
