Adobe Premiere Pro CC - Crop a video and export at the exact cropped size?

I have a video that has 4 up-down-left-right black borders of different sizes. I want to get rid of these black borders so the exported file has the exact size of the cropped area.To do this, I used the "crop" effect (I would have preferred a tool that allows me to set the crop dimensions in pixels, but I guess that's not supported). But then I had a problem when exporting the video: I'd like to be able to keep a hand on the parameters of the exported video, and ensure that the video will have the exact resolution of the cropped area. But I could not accomplish this.Can someone tell me how to do this?**EDIT:** My source video is 1002 x 720 (so it's in landscape mode)It contains a 316 x 562 portion I want to extract (so, portrait mode) The minimum I want is to be able to obtain a 316 x 562 video containing just the cropped section. The best I could obtain is a 632 x 1124 (or any other proportional scale) video on output.
