Hey everyone, I'm a video editor at a company that primarily transfers older media, but there are plenty of customers that come my way to get their phone videos put onto a DVD. As I'm sure many of you know, this means a vertical-orientation video. I've in the past solved this by either cropping it to a proper frame or keeping it vertical with the ugly black bars.
Recently, I've found it pleasing to copy and layer the video with the copies oriented to the left/right with a Gaussian blur applied for a background, possibly slightly darker or with a slight vignette as well. This hasn't been a problem until a recent project where there are around 300 clips to apply this sort of thing to. I was curious if it'd be possible to write a script to solve this issue as it could be quite the time-consuming, mind-numbing project otherwise.
...help? Thanks in advance!
