Introduction

Cropping is a feature that is built-in to all Virtual Camera compounds. This makes it very easy to properly crop and align your input. Cropping should be the second step in your input setup, right after defining the input itself.

CROP # panel

After importing any virtual camera compound, you can find the CROP # panel on the BILLBOARDS control board.

CROP 1 will crop INPUT 1, CROP 2 INPUT 2, etc.

In order to properly see the image you are working on, select the CROPPED button on the MONITOR  panel.

This will display the input after cropping, but before keying is applied.

You will also find some lines appear on the image to help with adjustments.

Attributes

Left, Right, Top and Bottom

These pins allow you to crop the four sides of the input image. The value is a percentage of the full size of the side.

Portrait

Sometimes, for a higher-resolution image of the talent, the camera is tilted to its side. 

Turn this feature ON to rotate the image. By default, the rotation is 90 degrees in a clockwise direction.

CCW

Turn this On for Counter-clockwise rotation of the Portrait mode.
