I am creating a video using the VSE where I show a sequence of screenshots of two devices side-by-side.
Unfortunately, one sequence of screenshots is from a Nexus 7 in portrait mode (resolution 800x1280) and the video I am making is 1920x1080. This means that the screenshot must be scaled down to fit on screen.
I have a sequence of the screenshots and some overlay elements grouped into a meta strip. Each screenshot has the Image Offset box checked so it is pixel-for-pixel to start with.
The meta strip has a transform effect strip applied to it and I apply a uniform scale of 1080x1280 to fit the meta strip on-screen. I do this so that all the screenshots in the meta strip benefit from the same scale and transform, and I can adjust the position of this screenshot sequence in the canvas without having to edit 10 different transform strips (and a growing number of overlays). Unfortunately, the top of the screenshot gets chopped off.
How do I prevent the large images in the meta strip from being cropped before the transform effect can shrink them onto the canvas?
