I'm very new to Avid FX so apologies for the badly formulated question first of all!
I'd like to try using Avid FX within MC 7.02 to stretch a portion of an image while leaving another portion unaffected. (In this case I'd like to leave my actor's face unaltered while stretching out the edges of the image either side of him.) Could anyone point me to the right filter to start playing with?
This sounds like something we could help you with in Boris FX Support. If you'd like to pursue it with us please fill out the form here. We'll definitely need to see a sample of the clip you're working with to get a sense of the project.
