Crop image size in quicktime or imovie.

Hi all, I've recorded a video using ishow and I've had to set the size to full screen, otherwise the frame jumps around in a horrible way.
My problem is I have recorded the video as I want it, now I want to reduce the size, like cropping an image, so the toolbars etc don't appear and only what I'm recording does.
Google searches have showed cropping movies as reducing the length. I am using imovie 4, or quicktime Version 7.6.4 (518.35), and have tried using the movie properties, and visual settings to reduce the size. However this shrinks the whole movie size and I don't want it scaled, but cut off the sides. Exactly like cropping images in images.
Any help appreciated. Would've thought the programmes I am using would have a way to do this without needing to purchase new software.

MPEG Streamclip can do this.

Open your video, File > Export to Quicktime, crop as required.
