The ability to de-squeeze footage recorded with anamorphic lenses and image flipping is available in Silverstack. This features are helpful to check the quality of the clips without distortions. Image transformations will be also applied if you decide to transcode the clips.
The de-squeezing option can be applied to a single or multiple clips in the Clip Info tab (⌘1) from the right panel. Scroll down to Processing info and an Anamorphic option will be shown. Click on the edit button and a panel will pop up as in figure 2. The available settings are 1.3x and 2.0x distortion, select the one that suites your needs and click on apply. The image will appear without distortions now.
Some production workflows demand the use of mirrors, such as 3D productions. When the moment of quality check arrives, Silverstack offers the ability to flip the image vertically, horizontally or both at the same time as shown in figure 3. This feature can also be applied to multiple clips at a time.
