Thread: Clipping a clip (Zoom in on a particular area and clip)

    Default Clipping a clip (Zoom in on a particular area and clip)

    Hi guys,
    I've captured some footage imported into premiere and I'd like to zoom in on a particular area and only use that part of it.

    Would the best way to do this be to scale the clip and then mask it? Or is there a way of deleting the area that you don't need?

    Any help's much appreciated and thank you in advance.

    Regards,
    Rob

    click the video, goto the effect controls panel, click the little arrow beside motion and click and drag the number next to scale. i know dragging it sounds strange but try it.

    Use the Crop Effect to remove the area you don't want, then scale the clip to the size you want it by adjusting the clip properties Motion/Scale property.

    cropping isn't necessary unless he wants a black border round the edge. that would just add to his/her's render time.

    Adding the crop effect and then scaling the clip to the required size will be easier and not cause any great addition to the rendering time. Rob asked for suggestions, this is the way I would do it
