In a nutshell, I am editing a life celebration, and some of the video provided for me was shot vertical on a cell phone. Since this is a one-time thing, there is no way to get video in any other format. I have been frustrated by something while editing, and I'm hoping someone has a solution or can point me to the error in my way of doing this. I researched the option of blurring the black bars in the video and have followed several tutorials, but here is where I'm running into trouble. When I Alt-click the vid 1 video and copy it to the vid 2 track, I try to scale vid track one, but on the program monitor, I cannot see the track open over the bars. Instead, all I see is the vertical video with bars. I hope I explained that well enough and someone could help me finish this important video.
Thanks, I have made sure I have V1 on. If I turn off track V2, I can see V1 and scale it, but when I turn on V2, I see the original vertical video with black bars. I'm sure I'm missing something, but so far, I have not found it.
