Flip Video

Shot a video in which the best angles were often rotated see:

1280x720...

I can think of a few ways to rotate it back, but looking for some suggestions on the "best way" keeping the aspect ratio correct and not letter boxing...


Thanks!

If you want to see the entire image, then you have no choice but to put up with the rather large black bars that result from doing a rotate on it.
Otherwise, open Pan/Crop on the clip, change the Rotation angle to -90 (or + 90 if needed) and crop (zoom in) as desired.

Yea, Pan and Crop is the "ways" I had in mind - but was hoping maybe had some other tricks up their sleeve :)

For example, anyway to make me look like I'm farther back? Change the perspective a little bit for example so that they are farther away?

What a lot of folks are doing in similar situations (me included), is to place the footage or still on a lower track, add Gaussian blur to it and then place the same footage or still on the upper track.
A blurred border (or anything else) can be added to the rotated footage/still to help it blend in better.

edit: feel free to use anything image-related for the lower track as you're limited only by your imagination and creativity.

Hrm....

Yea, that is something I should have but didn't think about....

What about track motion - I'm at my day job now so can't try it - but wonder if you could pull the perspective in 3d back some as well and then enlarge to fill in the screen more?
