converting 16:9 to 4:3

The reason I need to do it, is I started shooting a video with the 16:9 option on my Sony Vx2000, but I have since changed to 4:3 after I found out about the loss of resolution shooting this way, and I could do with using some of that 16:9 footage. I'm using Premiere 6.

Thanks

jon

Yes it recognises the stereo signal with the Vx2000.

Thanks

It doesnt load the transitions, but it does load a marker for the transition as a little solid with the correct in/out points. While its not ideal, it is handy, i tend to do the transition in after effects anyway. for you have more control over what its doing, but thats just personal prefference.

good luck with your project Ben.

There is a great tutorial on face blur in the Premiere Pro section at http://www.wrigleyvideo.com

If you have an earlier version, check out the sililar tutorial in the 6.0 section.

I take it its anamorphic 16x9 i.e. vertically squished when viewed on a 4:3 TV?

If it is then you will have to have black bars top and bottom. I guess you could zoom in on the footage but you will loose quality, and part of the image.

Off the top of my head I think this is what you need to do.

Create a 16x9 project
Capture the footage in at 16x9
Create a new project 4x3
Import your 16x9 captured clips into the 4x3 project
Place them on the timeline
Right click on the clip in the timeline and choose video options, and then select 'Maintain Aspect Ratio'
You will now get black bars top and bottom, you will have to render.

I think thats it,

Thanks,

And to go along with that, After Effects 6.5 is on its way, which FINALLY adds firewire out support for Windows based machines, and includes a comparable color corrector to premiere pro. Some much need improvements to that particular product, I think.

Sorry, no direct link, you can find the info on Adobe's site.

Capturing from GL2

I have Premiere 6.0 and a GL2. I am going to have to install a firewire card to my computer, but I was wondering if that is all I need to capture video from the camera into Premiere. Is anyone else using this setup? I would appreciate any info that anyone has as far as things that I need to look out for or any other additional accessories I may need in order to make this work correctly.

Thank you in advance and I look forward to your help.

Hi Belliso,

Everything should work with a standard firewire card. You'll have to bare in mind that everything you do will need to be rendered.

You might also want to get an external monitor so that you can see how your edits and effects will look on a TV. This can be connected through your camera. Make sure though you select DV playback in settings.

Thanks Ed.

About that rendering..

I will need to render everything before I can export, right? I will be able to see the edits as I go won't I? I worked on an oldr version of Premiere several years back, and the only thing that needed rendering were the more complicated transitions. Is this going to be different?

Hi Belliso,

Yes you will need to render everything before you export. You will be able to see your edits but for anything with an effect or complicated transition it will need to be rendered to see it real time. You could off course use the alt+scrub command to preview any effects that needs to be rendered. If you could possibly upgrade to 6.5 you'll get a real-time preview setting. That means that you will not need to render all your effects to preview them. But still need to render to export. Or buy hardware acceleration.

Blurring in Adobe Primiere

I want to blue out a selected section of a clip. You know the way they do on Cop shows when they don't want to show someone's face.

Is there a way to do that in Adobe Primier Pro?

thanks

There's a great tutorial at Wrigley Video that will teach you how to do it. Once you learned it you can then matte anything you want numerous different ways.

I haven't seen the new versions of Premiere, After Effects, etc. yet, but I am excited to see if they made any changes to the Audition interface to "Adobilize" it a little more. There seem to be a lot of significant changes to it. Anyway, i'm excited... i'll report back when i use them a little more.
