Is there a way to crop the video in premier elements? I have a screen that has a LOT of dead space around the subject matter. I am hoping that, like in PhotoShop, I can crop this out instead of having to reshoot and re-edit those parts of the project. (I am guessing that I will have to re-shoot!)
Thanks a bunch.
With one caveat, you can use the Motion>Scale to zoom in on the subject, essentially "cropping" it. You can use the Crop Effect, and will have the black bars for the Crop.
The caveat is that the quality will not be as good as that of the original. Will it work? Only you can judge this. A little Motion>Scale can be done, with good results.
There are other thngs that can be done, but involves an aesthetic decision, such as doing a PiP (Picture in Picture) with the material, that you wish to Crop.
Yeah, it worked. Sorry I didn't get back sooner. But it totally worked.
Glad that it worked. Thank you for reporting back.
