I am trying to edit high resolution footage in VSE. To make it possible I need to use proxies for all strips. Due to high resolution I opted to get only 25% sized proxies which seem to have enough detail to do editing.
However now I am facing issue with cropping footage. When I enable proxies in preview it shows it scaled down.
This makes proxies rather useless as I can't see what will be the result of my transformations. Is there a way to make use of proxies?
P.S. I am using blender 2.69
Below are images that show what I am talking about:
Default strip settings, no proxy and offset disabled. It gets stretched to fill frame (which screws up aspect ratio).
Enabling proxy makes quality lower, but framing is same.
offset makes strip exceed frame as it is bigger than target resolution.
Now my problems comes here, as after enabling proxy I expected to see same part of image, but at lower quality. This is however what I got:
And unsurprisingly any translations/scaling when using proxy doesn't let me estimate what will happen to final render.
