Corner Pin Question
on Dec 8, 2011 at 7:18:46 pm

Hi,

I just corner pin tracked a shot to go into a screen. The track worked well, but I need to extend the edges of the layer (beyond where the corner pin targets are) being corner pinned into a screen to hide some of the green present on the screen.

Can anyone suggest a method to do this without retracking everything?

Thanks,

Eric

Nest the corner pinned layer, then you can change the scale of the new nested layer by 1% or nudge it over.

In a DUPLICATED comp, you could put the footage in question -- from the project window -- in its own comp. Open that comp and reduce the horizontal & vertical dimensions a bit. It should look like you've cropped the layer.
Using the Option-drag trick of replacing footage, replace the the layer in question with this new comp.

I've never tried this trick, but it ought to work. It has the added virtue of having the ability to tweak things in that new comp: size, layer position, what have you.

another option... depending on the layer/pre-comp you may be able to add cc repetile before the corner pin effect to extend the layer, but keep the current corner pin placements.

actually, the transform effect would work too just to scale it up slightly.
