    Does anyone know of some good free video cropping software that works on a G4? I'm working on a school project that I would like to have done very soon. iMovie HD doesn't allow me to resize video clips (as in height and length), and I can't find any other software to work. For instance, I import a movie into iMovie HD, but since it's very tall, it turns it on its side, and there's no way to crop it so it will stand up vertically. Can anyone help here? If at all possible, make it free software? :D

    I don't have QuickTime Pro unfortunately and while I do have iMovie 08', it does not run on any G4 processor, as well os iMovie 09', which is why I use iMovie HD.

    Can anyone help? I would love to have this done pretty soon! :)
    I've tried Avidemux, but it doesn't seem to work right, and crashes a ton.
    EDIT: I found a solution! I found this iMovie plug-in that works all the way to Mac OS 10.1 Puma. It's called Turn-clip, and it does what it says: turns the video to wherever suits you! I worked perfectly for me.
    Turn-clip can be found here: http://www.imovieplugins.com/plugs/turnclip.html

    There is a program out there in torrent land that has serial numbers for QuickTime. I won't say what it is in public because I fear banhammers.

    If you do not want to only rotate the video and cut it in its length (playing time), but also want to encode it to another file format (to make the file size smaller), you can use Handbrake under 10.5. It has newer codecs than iMovie 6.

    EDIT: mpegstreamclip has a "rotate" function. You can point on the iMovie project file (the white icon) and press ctrl, while clicking on it, than choose "show package content", go to "media" and ctrl.+click on the media-file and choose "open with mpegstreamclip".

    Also, there are free x.264 codecs you can add to mpegstreamclips codec list.

    Turn-clip does its job for me. Thanks for the suggestion though! ;)
