TOPIC: Resize

Resize 5 days, 4 hours ago #206029

Ok I already know the basic resize feature. Is there a way to resize multiple picture segments? I already tried selecting them all with the yellow bracket things. If not, is there a way to combine them all into 1 segment in order to resize?

You can't change the length of a group of segments, you have to do them individually.

So you can't combine/glue segments either?

What kind of media does the section marked in blue on V1 show, video or still pictures?

I'm asking, because trimming video clips with moving pictures all at once doesn't make much sense, because all cuts will show random frames. You have to trim video cut by cut for a meaningful result anyways but, trimming a sequence of stills for duration all at once can make sense and, there's a way to do that.

Yep its a still picture. The specific scene i'm doing there is pretty much stop motion, and each picture is too long, so it looks "choppy". I need to shorten each to about the same length. So..... how do you do it?

You can use the right mouse button in the "Make" > "Print" sequence to create a new element in which the cuts are hidden. This new "Print" does not appear automatically in the sequence, but as a new print tile in the project content. You can insert / replace this tile like an imported clip in the sequence timeline. In the Sequence-Timeline you can change the speed of the print.

When creating a print from a complex sequence, the print may contain unwanted segments and unnecessary tracks. Therefore, it makes sense to look at the print timeline, but in LWKS 14.5 this is only possible with a flexible layout. Also, a print itself is not editable (apart from effects), but only the sequence from which this print was created, or the sequence in which this print was inserted.
EDIT: In your case it may be useful to create the stop motion image sequence in a separate Lightworks "Sequence" element.
The separate stop motion Sequence would only be responsible for creating a Print, and should contain only one track with the images (without gaps). From this you create a Print and insert it into the Master Sequence.
However, this requires that you can manage multiple Sequences in the project content.

There are several possibilities.
- With a "Print" as described.
- Manually with keyboard shortcuts directly in the sequence (for a few images).
- With a macro that automatically uses the keyboard shortcuts (personally I love macros)
- Export and reimport (I personally don't like)
- Or if you want more: External flow programs that can create a motion analysis of image sequences and conjure additional synthetic frames from them to simulate a fluid motion (but there is a risk of artifacts).
