As i'm getting used to the widescreen iMac, I'm having a minor annoyance. A lot of (quicktime) videos I have are widescreen (16:9) with the black bars intact (so the video itself is 4:3), rather than being the true aspect ratio of the video. Since the computer thinks the movies are 4:3 ratio, it puts black bars on the sides, leaving me with a 2" thick black margin around the movie. I think the black bars were left in to preserve the widescreen ratio should a movie player stretch the image, however my iMac will add (smaller) black bars of it's own, allowing the movie itself to span to the edges. Obviously whoever encoded these never anticipated widescreens Anyway, my question is, what's the easiest way to crop the entire video down to just the movie, removing the black bars, without screwing with video quality. Usually when people speak of cropping movies, they mean cropping linear time, which is not what I mean... rather removing extra black around the edges. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
