I've been seeing this effect a lot in various movies and I can't figure out how to do it. It basically looks like cropping the upper and lower regions of the picture, while the left and right sides remain intact. I think cropping, so I went straight for the event pan/crop button, but couldn't figure out how to do it. Here are a couple pictures to better describe it.
I took two screen-shots from a video that does this effect. Picture 1 is what this video was before the effect took place, and picture 2 displays the effect itself.

Picture 2: http://i41.tinypic.com/fncxuw.jpg
Both images were taken as the same height and width (from youtube). How can I do this?
btw I'm using Sony Vegas 8
