Converting 16X9 to 9X16?
on Feb 27, 2013 at 6:31:44 pm

I have a potential client looking to take a series of 16X9 DVDs and convert them to 9X16 so they can be played on vertical monitors. How would I do this? Is this possible in FCP 7.03 or Motion?

Thanks.

In theory. But you'd be stretching and/or cropping the material. What I've seen is that those kinds of videos are either shot with a rig that lays the camera sideways while shooting, or they are shot in high def and then comped in AfterEffects for the re-size and re-frame, for an SD output.

I too would love to hear from folks that work on these for store signage digital displays, to learn what the tricks are.

For one that I did, I edited sideways. Hmm...not really, my Dell monitor was set on it's side and I edited up to down. And then we delivered the final as 16:9...because the display that was showing it was ALSO laid on it's side. So it all worked out.

Thanks Shane, But how was that done? Did you stretch the image to fit sideways? and how did you avoid the top and bottom being cut off?
