Choppy zoom & getting rid of side/top borders


Mehndi Masala
 Share

Question

Hi there! Brand spanking newbie here so hopefully this has not been answered before. ( I tried a search and it seemed that there was little info for my issue)

 

I am trying to do some good display videos and I picked up the Creator 2009 pack as it seemed to do everything I wanted. I found that the output, tho better than the old version I had, has ‘choppy’ issues both with the zoom and slide and those darn black borders.

Case in Point: (you get the idea very quickly, from 0:41 it’s just more of the same)

 

I saw a photographer friend’s video and it was marvy and he used this site called animoto.com. I tossed in a couple of pix to see what I would get and got this..

Not bad, but what I want to do is use my own software and not that site to have more control over my transitions. I also want it to be much longer both for posting and for looping on my video screen. I’ve already bought C’2009 to do the work myself, not interested in paying a membership.

 

Now, in running around through the forum, I discovered that part of the problem may be that my video card is too old. OK…but what about those black side (or bottom) black borders?? Is there any way to do the same ‘fill’ in the sides of the photos like the animoto site or ditch them altogether somehow?? Or will they maybe not bother me so much if they aren’t so ‘choppy’ when they zoom is happening??

 

Thanks for any and all help! In general I love the software, and really want to make it work!!

 

Very best regards,

You have not supplied any any information on what you are doing, what program from C2009 you are using, etc. Your system specs especially video card would also be helpful.

Just looking at your YouTube video, it appears you have chosen a 16:9 project and selected 'show entire source' in the project settings. What this does is makes sure the entire photo is seen. Since most cameras shoot 4:3, there will be black bars on the sides. You can do one or two things: In Videowave project seetings choose 'fill screen' OR use Pan/zoom to do the same thing.

 

It appears you know how to use pan effectively. Try using that same feature to zoom in to fill the screen.
