    Video Effect for visibly changing aspect ratio?

    Is there an effect that can change the aspect ratio of a clip from, say 4:3 to 2.35:1, in the middle of the clip?  So that it would visibly happen in the middle of the clip?  Essentially, I want to have black bars slide in from the top and bottom of the frame to change the aspect ratio mid-shot.  What would be the best process for doing this?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I'd add an edit where you want to change the aspect ratio, then add a Resize effect to the second half of the clip and resize it however you like.  You'd use keyframes toward the beginning of the effect to make the black slide in over whatever time period you want.

    ciao,
