    Pan and scan

    I just got a client request to have me handle the pan and scan for the UK distributors.  They're going to provide me with the 2k ProRes HQ master.

    Is there a tutorial available?  I'm debating between doing this as an add edit with frame flex adjustment or just through the Pan and Zoom tool.

    Then there's something I notice when doing outputs to QT that shots pick up additional contrast in shadow areas.  Am I alone in this?  Is there anything I can do other than running a small brightness or contrast filter at the output stage?  Not my favorite idea.

    Re: Pan and scan

    I would do it with the Pan & Scan. More importantly, can you get an EDL for the film? If you can, there is a sneaky workaround to automatically add the edits to your timeline. 

    If not, use Resolve and you can have it automatically add the edits.

    Here is a tutorial for Pan & Scan. (Not pan & zoom which does something else.)

    You may be mixing RGB & 709 levels. Without seeing the exact issue it is hard to evaluate. here is a good primer in PDF format:
