I have a 35mm anamorphic lens and it has a good amount of barrel distortion just like the picture below. I was wondering if it was possible to correct for lens distortion in the telecine suite, zooming in and cropping the excess.
I fixed this shot below from The Untouchables in photoshop.
I love lens distortions at times, but I like flat field wide angle shots too. It kind of depends on the mood of the scene. Is this possible without losing video resolution by zooming in on the fine grained film image, NOT a video image in post, or do I have to do an expensive Digital Intermediate?
