Advanced Input Source Cropping

You can create multiple virtual camera shots for each input source. This works best with 4K inputs and Mevo.

Navigate to the Inputs tab. Find the desired input you wish to crop and click the gearwheel that corresponds to it to enter its settings.

This feature does not work on media sources or GFX sources.

Select the Crop tab on the left side.

You can do a basic crop by clicking and dragging the corner of the image, and dragging and dropping the cropped frame. You can also scroll on your mouse or trackpad to crop. The crop will be locked to the aspect ratio of your project format (16:9 in most cases).

Click Advanced Mode to reveal more cropping options.

If you are using Mevo, you will only see Advanced mode for cropping. Learn more about controlling Mevo via Studio.

To the right of your source are numbers 1-4 in different colors, each with a corresponding Take and Edit button.

Clicking Edit on any shot will allow you to adjust that particular shot without affecting the output. Click and drag the corners to crop the shot. Notice the border of your shot matches the color of the corresponding number, and the source in the multi-view is not yet reflecting the crop.

You can also scroll on your mouse (i.e. with a scroll wheel or if it's a touch-sensitive mouse) to crop your shot.

Before clicking the glowing Take button, check the Transition Duration setting below.

Under Transition Duration, you can choose how you fast you want to move between shots. Cut will be an immediate switch. The following timer buttons indicate a virtual camera movement (i.e., a virtual tilt or pan) in order of increasing time (fast, medium, slow).


Once your Transition Duration is set, click the glowing Take button.

The Take button will turn red and you will notice your input will transition to the cropped area in your multi-view.

You can build up to four different cropped areas per input using the corresponding Edit buttons. Switch between each using their corresponding Take buttons.
