cropping from 16:9 to 4:3, Final project format
on Oct 25, 2009 at 8:39:15 am

Hello to everyone

I am editing a project that was shot in DVCpro50 , I want to crop to reframe some shoots since I think they are wide for the characters and make the main charcacter bigguer and less air around.

I am editing in a DV anamorphic sequeneces

1) I heard if I edit in 4:3 sequence with black bars in top of bottom I will have more room to reframe without loosing quality. If I do this with what percentage can I work without being noticeable? what if I stay in the original anamorphic preset?

2) What do you think is the most convenient for the final master? to have the movie in anamorphic, or have the 4:3 format with black bars top and botom

Best ragards and thanks for your help

Judge this for yourself I'd say... use an external monitor while you expand the shots to see when it's unacceptable.

You should be editing in a DVCPRO50 sequence setting, and I don't see where letterboxing helps or hurts actually Check it out for yourself I'd say, and definitely look at it externally on a monitor or even a TV set while you expand.
