    a simple trim/crop question....

    richardELeach Level 1

      Hi Gang-

       

      I shot some footage where I literally only need the middle third of the footage; the camera was set to a really wide setting and as a result the captured footage needs to be trimmed (or clipped) down so that I'm left with the middle third of the screen's contents.

       

      I tried Video Effects>Transform>Crop and that only seems to allow me to resize the entire shot - scaling it, but I would actually like to cut away the excess screen area and only be left with a smaller clip size without any scaling.

       

      I'm sure I'm missing the obvious, and there's only a million settings in PP CS5... anyone?

       

      Thanks in advance,

       

      Rich
