Q: Cropping Video Size
"zoom & pan are great, and resizing the output are great but is there any way to crop a video and retain aspect ratio but change video dimensons? I want to cut out the top and bottom of my recorded image but not have to change the aspect ratio, I want to change the video dimensions keep the ratio and have an un-distorted video file. Is there any simple way to crop a video smoothly?"
Professional image editors often need to change the focus of a photograph or remove unnecessary portions. To do this, they use a technique called cropping. A valuable tool for image editors, it is also helpful when editing video. Cropping allows you to remove unnecessary or distracting portions of a video clip or change its dimensions to fit within a certain area. As my colleague explains, cropping is the process of moving or adjusting the edges of an image. In most cases, this is “to improve framing or composition, draw a viewer’s eye to the image subject, or change the size or aspect ratio.”
Whether you’re working with footage from a camera or screen video, you will likely run into times when you need to crop your footage. Camera footage is often cropped to change the emphasis of a shot or remove unwanted and distracting portions.

Tutorial on How to Crop Videos with Brorsoft Video Converter Ultimate
Step 1. Import video- if you are using one video file or many, start by importing to the program. One way to accomplish that is by dragging and dropping the files to the program but you can go to the menu bar and choose "+" then "add files". They are all effective enough.
Tips: This video editor supports almost all regular video formats, including MP4, FLV, AVI, 3GP, MOV, F4V, M4V, MPG, MPEG, TS, TRP, M2TS, MTS, TP, WMV, MKV, Blu-ray, DVD, ISO, Video_TS, VOB etc.
Step 2. Now drag and drop video to the timeline with ease.
Step 3. Start cropping.
Switch to “Crop” tab, and follow either of the below methods to crop selected video:
a. Crop video by dragging and dropping the crop frame
Simply move your mouse cursor to drag and adjust the four corners of the green frame to desired position.
b. Crop video by setting values
Under Crop tab there are four value fields: Left, Top, Width and Height. You can either type in specific values in the fields or adjust slider to constrict the area you want to remain.
Keep Original Aspect Ratio
Once the box is checked, the output file will derive its aspect ratio from the parameter of cropped area. And this feature takes effect only when the aspect ratio of cropped part is inconsistent with the target profile settings. So, if you want to keep the cropped aspect ratio, make sure “Original” is not selected when you set the Video Size in “Settings”.
