So here I have this movie file: I have another one of the same movie, except in the AVI format. Now theres a long long long story. As you can see, there are black bars on top and on the bottom of the video, which werent there with the AVI format in the beginning, I would like to remove them. Is there such feature in Final Cut Express where I can crop out the top and bottom bars. Then in my video compression application (iSquint) stretch the dimensions to 640x480? The actual video here is 664 x 268. Pretty much what I am asking, is if I can crop out the black parts using iMovie 09, or iMovie HD, OR even Final Cut express. and what I mean by cropping, is to get the video from its current res 640x480, down to 664 x 268 where the actual video is, then stretch is to 640x480 with the bars. I know there are other ways around this, but as i said LONG story, it wasnt simple just converting the AVI to MP4 with the 640x480 res. (problems occurred, dont ask lol) thanks for all the help in advance.
