I recently did a 35mm anamorphic project in which on our wider lenes caught some of the matte box in corners of the frame. Is there a way to do a slight optical blowup to crop the edges of frame?

Is there a likleyhood of the grain increasing on these shots doing this process - that is, if it the process even exists. The problem shots are both on 5246 & 5279.

I imagine it is possible to do in a DI situation. Would doing a DI on the shots be better as far as matching the look to other shots in scene.

Any input/suggestions would be helpful.

It's perfectly possible in a digital situation, as well as traditional means with an optical printer.

There's will be a little grain increase, but shouldn't be awful if the vignetting is only slight like you say.
