Render beyond frame window
show user profile  zeefusion
Hi all,

I remember there being a script that would allow you to render beyond the frame window without perspective distortion. But i cant find it anywhere, does anyone know what I am on about and have a link to it?

yeah overscan!

Technically if you ever need to do this (without a script) it involves making the film back/sensor size and the frame size bigger by the same amount say 1.2x and while NOT changing the lens mm

Needs to be done when rendering onto heavily distorted plates

First thing that comes to mind is a camera shake in post?

Yea, some compositing tricks need overscan. camerashake and post moves is one, generating lensflares and glares is another. So that they don't "pop" on to frame, they can fade on before they are even in frame. Lens distortion is another reason, and so on -
