    How to Crop a Clip by Pixels instead of Percentage (PRE11)

    caeusdotcom-TV

      Hi,

       

      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:

       

      http://help.adobe.com/en_US/premiereelements/using/WS4B8135DA-083C-42eb-B09E-65070ECBC889. html#WS44DE71A2-B004-4103-BD28-54BB1BB42A27

       

      Here, it does state: (I've emphasised the important bit)

       

      Crop

       

      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!

       

      Paul
