How do I make all of my 16:9 footage into 4:3?

Hi all,

I have a bunch of 16:9 footage that was shot with the intention of putting a 4:3 matte on; however, I don't want to guess how much to crop and all of that, but I cannot find a 4:3 filter or plugin. Any ideas?

Best,
Daniel

Off the top of my head....create a 4:3 timeline and drop your footage into the new timeline, pan and scan accordingly.

Or do the center cut inside of After Effects.

Or use the search feature on the COW: http://forums.creativecow.net/search.php?q=16%3A9+to+4%3A3&f%5B%5D=8

what Ryan said re the 4/3 timeline.

otherwise...

i make widescreen masks for 16/9 down to 2.35, i'm hoping the same process will work for you.

drop some Matte> Color into in a 16/9 timeline, make i white.
drop a wide screen mask on to it, set it to 4/3.
(i hope this is possible!)

export a still image,
bring it into Photoshop, and delete the white, leaving just the black border.

that's your mask.
