Im almost done with my movie, so i need to know how to crop it. Ive never used this feature on anything before, but i know it takes some off the top and some off the bottom. How can i do it and what program do i do it in? Cheers.

well what program did u use to put the video together?

Most of the good video editors lets you crop it before you save it.

S! danjama

To handle this cropping job, choose <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">"Null Transform"</span> under Video then filters. Click the add button and find Null Transform. Then click the "Cropping" button and select the area you want to black out. Cropping will have the added benefit of deleting the blacked-out video information which decreases the size of your movie file.

Use 50 for the x axis on both sides and 120 for the top and 90 for bottom.

Then go to the menu click file then click "save as AVI."

doh! danjama, I know its too late now, but I would crop the clips BEFORE editting them in WMM or whatever you use (I use Premiere Pro).

Falcon is right on his instructions, but you won't be able to edit any files with VirtualDub that you produce with WMM (Master Bill doesn't allow that!)

I would crop raw files to 640x360 then import these to the editing programme, setting the editing programme to the same resolution (I think in WMM you can select 16:9 ratio which is effectively the same thing)

Danjama, check out Dart's Filmmaking link in my sig. It should teach you all about stuff like this, and probably a few more things.

S!

Adopt a squatting position, firmly grip your knees with your hands, take a deep breath and then push hard.

Hope this helps http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
