Image scaling in Free 18.0.1 - Transparent area around image

PostThu Aug 11, 2022 10:13 am

Good day Everyone,

My question is about how the free version deals with images that are larger than the "allowed" size of the free version. Resolve resizes the image on a sort of canvas that creates a transparent border around the image.

Is there a way mo make Resolve simply resize the image in a normal way? As in, simply resize down without creating that transparent background and simply fill the screen.

If you are talking about the Fusion page like in my examples below, you just have to go to your Project Settings, go to the scaling section and under Input Scaling choose Center Crop No Resizing.

Thank you Xunile, for that information. Never thought of doing it that way. Didn't realize those two were connected/the reason it works that way.

Does this have anything to do with it being the free version? Would changing this setting not be needed for the paid version due to the resolution limitation being removed?

No, this issue happens in the Studio version as well.

Ok, good to know. I have always found this to be a very peculiar way of resizing an image automatically. I have never seen any other package do it like this.
