Resize composition to size of masked footage
on Sep 22, 2010 at 12:36:38 am

Hello,

This may seem as a dumb question.. But I've been stumbling on it for two hours already and googling doesn't help.

So I have a footage, I want to resize. I draw a mask.

I want a new composition exactly the size of that mask..

I don't care if I have to render the thing first.

But the best I cold get is the same footage, but with a huge black masked-out areas..

Advices would be reeeally appreciated.

Need this ASAP, really..

Are you simply trying to resize using a mask? Could you possibly try resizing without the mask to get the same effect? If you provide some more details on what your attempting, I could probably give you a solution and/or workaround.

In your comp, mask the layer as desired. Scale up the layer until you don't see the edges of the mask any more.

Know that scaling up a layer too much results in the footage looking soft.
