quick letterbox question
on Jun 30, 2015 at 1:38:49 pm

Hi All,

Here is hopefully a quick and easy one...

multi cam shoot - one of my main cameras was not level when it was recording. So, I added 1 degree of rotation in the motion tab. Fixed that.

but when I view that clip on a 4x3 TV as 16x9, the top of the letterbox is a little "jagged" instead of straight...

is there a simple way to correct this with any clip that I rotate like that? my first thought was to just zoom the clip by like 105 percent or something just enough to hide that? or is there a better way?

Your first thought is correct. Zoom.

yes, zoom will hide the issue,
you should set the sequences motion filtering to BEST
this will improve the quality of the rotation once it is rendered

you do this in the sequence's settings, in the video tab.
