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.
The first thing you need to do is create a new sequence and set the sequence dimensions to 316x552. Import your footage into that sequence and make sure the video fits properly. Press command + M (on a Mac) to export your sequence. In the export window make sure the dimensions match your sequence. If they don’t you can click the oval shaped symbol next to the two dimension numbers which will unlock the dimensions so you can edit both of them to the numbers you want. Name your file and choose an export destination and click export! I hope that helps!
