I have 30fps, 1440dpi car Dashcam footage but desired action is far away. Would like to resample to 720 or 360dpi 30fps, w/o loss of pixels & only use part of resulting video (crop?) that contains action.

Searched resample & zoom but couldn't understand if any applied to my situation.

  • $\begingroup$ So you want to crop the video and let the result be the total width/height for the output video? $\endgroup$ – rob Aug 30 '19 at 8:22
  • $\begingroup$ Yes. I want to zoom (resample?) so the desired action is in the forefront. Have that take up most of the width/height of video & remove (crop?) the insignificant excess surrounding the action. IOW, as if the camera was closer to the action. $\endgroup$ – Bill Frank Aug 30 '19 at 16:25

Load your video clip into VSE (I'm using an image here, but it is the same for videos)

VSE High res

Set the resolution to your output requirements.

Add an Effects Strip -> Transform

Change the Scale parameters and recenter with the Position X/Y


Render output resampled.

I spent sometime trying the Clip options in the Transform strip but they did not work when changing the output resolution.

    $\begingroup$ Tried your method, (thanks for suggestion), but moving X & Y distorted frame, not moving w/in image. Having some luck w/ transform effect. Will post when finished testing w/ what, if anything worked. $\endgroup$ – Bill Frank Sep 6 '19 at 19:03
