How to distort a clip ? (kinda "free transform" type effect from Photoshop)
on Sep 1, 2006 at 2:16:41 pm

Hi all!

I'm a first time user and enjoy discovering this website!

However, I'm having a tough time about one specific area :

I need to distort a clip. But not your typical distort which you can do thru the 3D effect or Perspective. I'd like to distort a clip by selecting each corner of the object and move them the way I want, not by keeping a scale or a ratio uniform.

I took a clip on a building with an angle on it. Now, I want to put another clip on top of that one to make it look like it's beeing projected on the wall of that building..

So, I need the clip to have, let's say a left side of 3 inches, and the right side at 5 inches and follow the side of the wall of the building...

Hopefully, you'll be able to picture what I'm trying to say/achieve..

So my question again : How do I distort clips ?

Thank you very much!

Premiere Pro wouldn't be the right choice for what you are trying to accomplish. Take a look at Adobe After Effects, as that may suit you better.

How about the 4 point garbage matte? This allows for seperate positions for each corner of a clip.

I'm sure that almost 3 years later this won't help the person who asked the question, but to anybody else like me who stumbles upon it looking for the answer, here you go.

Video effects > Distort > Corner Pin

It allows you to choose a location for each corner of the video, mimicking the "Distort" tool that you would use in Photoshop.

3 years (6 years in total!) also saying thank you. This saved me endless fiddling around with 3D controls when I knew exactly what I wanted but couldn't find it.

I'm at a loss. I go to video effects and there is no distort. Am I looking in the right place? Please help, a millions years later.

8 years and 4 hours later. Red Giant has a plugin called Warp that does this as well, in case Adobe decides to remove the option, as they are wont to do.
