I'm working on a project where I need to take a number of source clips, make edits, including cropping them (each clip may have different crop settings), and re-use them to create a final video.
I'm using Premiere Pro 1.5 and I don't think I can actually crop my clips without compressing them (via the pre-compression tasks). So, the question is, how do I go about cropping my clips and re-using them without applying any compression?
The final output will be FLV, so I'd like to avoid compressing too many times before outputting to FLV.
I hope that makes sense. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
