2.35

If you're editing HD100 footage

in a 1280 x 720 AIC formated sequence at 23.98 how do you crop it so that you can have that neat 2.35 wide movie letterbox thingamajig?

I searched (that's how I found this thread) but can only find topics applicable to SD rather that HD. I have the same question; I want to crop my 1080i footage from my Z1 from 1.77:1 to 2.35:1.

I know PPro has a 'clip' function that allows this, but I don't know how to tell how many pixels I should be clipping.

Are you using FCP? IF so, use the crop, but perhaps the "matte" in Effects and select 2:35.1. Then you can crop out the black letterbox afterwards.

I'm using Premiere Pro and the 'clip' function to do it, but I don't know how much to clip. Has anybody done it and got the correct aspect ratio of 2.35:1 with 1080i footage? Or 720p footage for Bruce?

The use the "widescreen" video filter found in the Matte sub-menu. It has presets for all of the common aspect ratios.

Someone posted a few years ago with a link to Photoshop files of the various aspect ratio mattes that you simply drop in as a new top video layer, the advantage over selecting the filter in FCP that it took less time to render. Anyone know where these can be found?
