I’m trying to arrange an interview show with a moving video background and colored frame borders around my sources. I would like to use the Split Screen layer for the slick automatic zoom in / out feature when switching between 2-3 ups to solo individuals.
What I would like to do is solo individuals without bringing them up to a full screen shot - ideally zooming in the 1up speaker to appear seamlessly within a 1up frame while still keeping my background video layer visible around the edges of the screen.
Is there another layer that would make this easier? I can add a border overlay to my source by playing with the Image Resizer filter but I can’t figure out how to use the built in solo transitions to not show the shot fullscreen.
Is there a better filter to use for adding a simple colored border overlay directly to my source?
I have experimented with using the overshoulder insert to push transition my video sources in/out but this gets a little clunky when I am trying to manage multiple sources at a time.
Overall I really like this software, but I would love to see more transitions available in general, where are my fade to black, dip to color, push in/out options for standard video sources? Am i just looking in the wrong place?
Any advice along these lines would be appreciated.
