Panning larger resolution event within a project
on Dec 17, 2014 at 9:21:15 pm

SVP12 Pro.

I thought this would be easier, but I obviously some something simple, wrong.

I have a project with the properties set to 1280 x 720.

I have several events containing media at this resolution.

I have one media clip of 1920 x 1080, and I want to place this on a track and 'move around' within the event so that at any stage I have a 'window' of 1280 x 720 onto the clip. The clip contains green-screen footage of birds flying and they are far too large, so I want to zoom out on this track so they are much smaller.

The problem is that no matter what I do the pan/crop window does not appear to allow me pan around the track - it seems to treat it as 1280x720.

I have tried unsetting the 'maintain aspect ration' and 'stretch to fill frame'. I have also tried track motion and it all gives the same result.

Ideally I would like to zoom out on the 1920 clip so it is 1280, thus making the birds in the clip much smaller...

I have confirmed the footage is definitely 1920x1080

I have followed various tutorials and none of them seem to address this specific issue.

Many thanks for any pointers on how to achieve this.

STBO.

Your Track Motion keyframe should be 1280x720.
Your P/C keyframes can be between 1920x1080 down to 128x720, probably maintaining the 16:9 aspect ratio.

Vegas will then scale the Event to 1280x720 at the x-y-z location specified by your Track Motion keyframe.

Tyson,

Thanks for the info. To be honest I am a little lost.

When you say 'Your Track Motion keyframe should be 1280x720.' what do you mean - do you mean the width/height settings? What am I keyframing?

Also, when I set the P/C size to 1280/720 the image is now much bigger.

Apologies - but I have no idea where to start with what you are saying - what am I keyframing, and when?

Thanks,

STBO

Go into Pan/Crop for the media that is 1920x1080 and set the width to 1280 and height to 720 and you will have the Pan window that you are after.

Yes, the width and height should be 1280x720. If this matches your project settings, then that Track uses the entire display region. Eg., if you made it 854x480 (also 16:9), then you could position it within your (larger) 1280x720 display region.

> when I set the P/C size to 1280/720 the image is now much bigger.
Your project ix 1280x720.
Your Event is 1920x1080.

On your 1280x720 Track ...
If you put a 1280x720 P/C keyframe on that Event, then that should be shown, pixel for pixel.
If you put a 1600x900 P/C keyframe on that Event, then that should be shown (scaled down to 1280x720).
If you put a 1920x1080 P/C keyframe on that Event, then the entire Event should be shown but scaled down to 1280x720.

Folks,

Thank you all for the replies. it has helped me greatly understand what is going on.

having worked through all the answers and experimented I see now the relationships and realise I was making things far too complicated for myself by over-thinking it.

Thanks,

STBO.
