Request for a simple 'DVE'
We're editing a comedy series on Premiere Pro at the moment, and it's great. The one feature I am constantly missing, and surprised it's not there is what I would call a 'DVE'. This is the ability to move images in 3D space, rotating in X, Y and Z axes. I come from an online video editing background and we were using DVEs back in the 80s and 90s. They are still of course used today in live studio situations. You could resize, crop, put borders on, colour the borders, soften the borders and crops, rotate, distort, skew, corner pin - all on one device. Plus all the usual mosaic and posterisation type effects. Although they could do the spinning transitions for entertainment shows which thankfully have long gone out of fashion now, they were actually indispensable workhorses for repositioning images, especially in perspective rather than just a 2D resize. I'm really surprised that PP doesn't have anything like this - sure you can do some distortion and corner pinning, but I can't find a what I would call a basic 3D space image mover, with crops, borders, shadows, matte key - am I missing something? It would be great if it already exists, but I can't find it! I know there is a 'Basic 3D' effect, but that only rotates in 2 axes and doesn't resize. 'Transform' has some features but not all, and you can't even add borders to the crop effect. So you end up doing a tree of single effects to achieve what was pretty standard stuff 30 years ago. It would be really useful to have this feature please.
