    I have a video on my computer that is 4:3, but the content is 16x9...is there a program out there that will allow me to strip out the black bars, so that when I put it on Apple TV that it will fill the screen? Either iMovie 06 or 08? I attached a pic, just so you have an idea of what I mean...

    Thanks!!

    iMovie '08 should do the trick!

    So helpful! I jest.

    Navigate to page 26/27 of this guide (for iMovie '08): http://manuals.info.apple.com/en/iMovie_08_Getting_Started.pdf

    I believe that for iMovie '06 and earlier, a third party plug-in was required to crop video, but don't quote me on that.

    Ahhh! Thank you both soo much! That was really starting to annoy me watching it window-boxed, haha

    I just got iMovie 08 and have yet to use it, I'll give this a try right now, thanks again!

    This could also be done with Quicktime. Just create a suitable mask and apply it to the video track. Fast and easy, no rendering required.

    Only if you have QuickTime Pro...
