    Of course if ytou crop then the video clip will no longer fit your frame and you'll have a black broder. If this is an issue then you might want to play with the position and zoom settings instead.

    Default Crop a video?

    Import your video into After Effects, use the transitions, scale and transitions position controls to crop your vision and reposition to where you wish. You can even set in and out points at the exact time within your video if it is in the middle and not the complete file that you are cropping.

    Hope this helps
