Dynamic Zoom rotate selection

PostMon Jul 17, 2017 3:08 pm

Hi,

I'm totally new to Resolve, I'm just trying to create a video Header for my facebook page ;) I'm using static images (I'm a photographer), so since the header format is 820x312, I want to do a Ken&Burns effect over the images.
I found the dynamic zoom, it works fine, however the start&end boxes it gives me are in portrait mode, and I'd like to have them in landscape format. Is that possible? I only found how to resize/move them so far...
(I'm using the 14beta btw.)

Not really sure what you mean by the start and end boxes are in portrait mode, but this tutorial shows how to dynamic zoom and how to modify its behaviours. Personally I use keyframes and scaling to do Ken Burns style effects but after having watched this I might change :) :

from minute 2 of the video, you see the green and red rectangle. It seems to have the same scale as the footage (in this case, landscape format). When I insert a photo that is in portrait format, the rectangles are also portrait format. I need them in landscape format however, to get more of the image in the frame ;) Though it seems it is locked on the source footage...

I'm guessing they get locked off to the aspect ratio of the image you import. Use keyframes and resizing controls instead for full control. You can pan and zoom any way you like using this method, however flexibility comes with slightly more complexity
