I am making a video of my daughter reading a favorite soty to her daughter. I've scanned the pages of the story book and want to put a small video of my daughter reading in the corner. The pages will dissolve into each other as she reads.
How do I get a square or 'portrait' image of the video of my daugher? It was made in 'landscape' mode.
My approach would be to put the photos on the video 1 track. Then put the video of your daugher on video track 2. Select the video clip and use the "Crop" effect from the Fx panel. It may takes some experimentation with the Crop effect, but I think it will do what you want. Once the video is running right you can change the length of each photo to time them with the video.
In my example I have a video of some birds with the Crop effect applied and it is over a still landscape photo.
