I shoot all my footage in DCI 4K but edit in a UHD 2:1 timeline, I was wondering if there was any way that I could stabilize my footage so that
it doesn't zoom in at all when I apply the effect and it only uses the extra pixels outside of the edge of the timeline frame.
I can't find a way to do this at all as it will always just crop the footage, it doesn't matter how I have the spatial conform set or my stabilization settings.
But it seems like something that should be pretty easy to do.
If I'm not mistaken and I have tried this with the footage.
It will always crop as it needs to in order to stabilize.
It evaluates the shot and then has to give itself some space to stabilize properly.
I can't remember if it was in Premiere or in Motion but you could tell it not to zoom in. Of course you'd get lots of wiggling black borders everywhere and it looked completely silly, like a rectangle having a nervous breakdown. But if you don't want the black bars, then it MUST crop. That's just the way stabilizing works.
