Making Geometry Adjustments to a Setting

You use the Geometry pane in the Inspector window to crop, scale, and change the frame aspect ratio in a setting.

To add cropping, frame sizing, and aspect ratio settings to your setting
  1. Open the Settings tab.

  2. Select the setting in the Settings tab that you want to modify. (Or select a setting already applied to a source media file in the Batch window.)

  3. Click the Geometry tab in the Inspector.

  4. Enter your source inset (cropping) settings, choose output size dimensions from the Frame Size pop-up menu, and choose padding settings from the output image inset section.

    You can see all changes you make to your setting by viewing the Summary table in the Summary pane.

    Note: There are two ways to adjust frame size. You can either enter numbers in the cropping fields or drag the red frame bars in the Preview window. Using the latter method, the resulting numbers dynamically appear in the cropping fields so that you can see a numerical representation of your frame cropping. Hold down the Shift key to constrain the crop to either the source aspect ratio, the source height, or the source width.
