I've just upgraded to Premiere Elements 11, and playing around with the Transform effects, I only have the option to crop a clip by percentage and not pixels like in Premiere Pro.
Presuming this was a limitation of the "consumer" grade edition, I did some Googling and found this page:
Here, it does state: (I've emphasised the important bit)
The Crop effect trims rows of pixels from the edges of a clip and, if you select the Zoom option, automatically resizes the trimmed clip to its original dimensions. Use the slider controls to crop each edge of the clip separately. You can crop by pixels or clip percentage.
I can't for the life of me see how to change the option though. Is the documentation correct? Am I missing something blindingly obvious?
Very grateful of any help. Thanks!
I am unaware of such a setting. Sorry.
However, converting pixels to percentage takes some pretty simple math -- since standard def video is 720x480 and high-def is 1920x1080.
How many pixels are you trying to crop off? On a high-def video, for instance, 1% of the width = 19.20 pixels.
Thanks for your reply, yeah obviously I can do the maths but it's a bit of a pain and it doesn't let you have precise accuracy as with specifying the actual number of pixels.
It's a shame that Adobe's documentation appears to be inaccurate... people look at that before making a purchase!
