Hi,

I have one or two clips where my hand-held camerawork wobbles around slightly, i.e. the horizon does not stay level, first sloping one way then the other from the horizontal. I hoped to be able to correct this with the Modify button by using keyframes to vary the rotation. I thought it was a case of clicking the Add/Edit motion tab in the PiP designer, selecting the green cross then adding keyframes at the required points and adjusting the rotation but it doesn't work the way I expected.

I can't find any information on this in the pdf manual or the Help menu so I'd be most grateful if someone can point me in the right direction. Regards,
Mike

Hi Mike -

In PD9, that can't be done to my knowledge.

PD10 has the added facility to change rotation attributes by keyframing... http://youtu.be/d5xV_Tz8Oas

Hi Tony,

Thanks. I had a feeling that might be the case.

I had already looked at that PDtoots video but it seems a very long-winded procedure and unless I've misunderstood it (perfectly possible ) it doesn't look as if it would do what I want, which is to apply a few degrees of correction, both positive and negative, smoothly at different points in the clip. Regards,
Mike
