Part 3: Correcting Registration

I. Layer Correction:
   If you find that a layer is not aligned with the rest of the layers, you can reposition that layer using CAMERA FX.
  • Select all your frames by clicking on FRM or the far-left-hand upper-corner of the XSheet.

  • Click on Camera FX.

  • Camera FX should open up a new window.

  • Click File -> Backup Database.

  •       This should save a copy of your current camera moves.
          If you make a mistake, just click on Restore Database and everything will be returned to the state it was in when you last clicked "Backup Database".

  • Click Edit -> Setup Pegbars.

  •       Pegbars are just a way of grouping images that you can manipulate.
          By default, there is only one peg bar with all your layers.

  • Click on the layer you want to edit and remove it from Pegbar 1.
  • Go to a new Pegbar and attach it to that pegbar and make sure there is no lock on the N-S or E-W directions.
  • Now you can move the layer around until it is aligned. Record the N-S and E-W adjustments so you know how far you moved the layer.
  • Go back to the first frame and see if everything is still aligned.
  • If not, just type in the N-S and E-W shifts in the appropriate boxes and the entire frame should now be aligned.


  • I. Frame Correction:
       If you find one or two frames are not registered, please follow these steps:
  • Select all your frames by clicking on FRM or the far-left-hand upper-corner of the XSheet.

  • Click on Camera FX.

  • Camera FX should open up a new window.

  • Click File -> Backup Database.

  •       This should save a copy of your current camera moves.
          If you make a mistake, just click on Restore Database and everything will be returned to the state it was in when you last clicked "Backup Database".

  • Click Edit -> Setup Pegbars.

  •       Pegbars are just a way of grouping images that you can manipulate.
          By default, there is only one peg bar with all your layers.

       Now you want to put the layer with the misaligned frame on a separate Pegbar:
  • Click on the layer you want to edit and remove it from Pegbar 1.
  • Go to a new Pegbar and attach it to that pegbar and make sure there is no lock on the N-S or E-W directions.
  • Go to the frame after the misaligned frame and check to see the correct alignment. Not the N-S and E-W values.
  • Go to the incorrect frame and move it so it aligns.
  • Go to the frame after once more and reset the N-S and E-W adjustments back to what they were before.

  •     This way, the correction you made affects only a single frame, not the entire piece.
        The bad frame should now be aligned.
