Premier Elements 9. How do you crop/zoom video?
I have a video of a screen recording I did over the weekend. This was done with an external camera and I have a large blank area surrounding the image (I filmed it in a darkened room to prevent screen glare and reflection). I've been editing it using Premier Elements 9 and the crop tool seems to auto detect the screen in the middle of the shot and allow me to crop that. However to surrounding dark space still remains once I have cropped the image. So my question is this. How do I make PE crop the central image and only render that? Is it possible?

Don't use Elements myself - but does it still work like this? How to crop a video with Adobe Premiere Elements*4 « :: m y C L O N E ::
If you click the zoom button does it resize the crop to the screen?

In Elements 8 it's Edit - scrool down to the Crop control and drag it to the time line. Edit Effects and you can then crop. Depending what you want to do, tale a look at Clip as well.

I get to crop, but it still keeps the black surround. It's very strange. I'll have another try with what you have suggested as I 'may' be doing something wrong. Heaven forbid I actually use online help*
*Actually I did, and after a 5 min update it was still next to useless.

Once you've cropped do you have to rescale to get it to fit? If so, you may just as well rescale so the bits you don't want fall off the edge.

Thanks Mike, that worked. I don't know why it didn't earlier (I had found that one and followed the steps). Anyway, happy now.Many thanks.
