Okay, so I take part in MAPS/MEPS on youtube for fun. In a part I’ve been working on I’m trying to simply slide an image across the screen. It comes in fast, moves a bit slowly when it gets to a certain point, then quickly continues off screen. However, for some reason, the image squashes as it moves on/off screen and I cannot get it to work properly.
Here’s a quick recording of what it’s doing.
Maintain Aspect Ratio is set to “No”
Stretch to fill is set to “Yes”
If I reverse that, then the images are cut off at the edges. Please help 🙁

Try using Track Motion rather than Pan/Crop to move the image. Key frame to control the rate of motion.
In addition to what Jack said – start off in pan & crop, right click on the image/area and set aspect ratio to match the output ratio. This should prevent the images from getting cut off or squished around the edges.
