    Default How to crop a video?

    Hi all,
    I took a few videos on my iPhone this weekend and, being in a hurry to capture the scene, did not zoom in sufficiently in a couple of them so the subject is too far in the background. It looks like there are a number of programs available that will crop videos but I don't know if they will do the job, ie do they crop the entire video in one hit or can parts be cropped and parts be left as is? Has anyone done this before? The videos are in MOV format and I'm using Windows 8.1.
    Thanks.

    In cases like that in the past I have zoomed the movie or a picture and then recapture the zoomed area. You may lose a little bit in quality depending on how good the original is.

    There are several programs that you can use. Did you want audio as well ?

    perhaps us one of the free video editors . There will be a bit of a learning curve to get past though ?

    This video editor can trim and it is free, I've used it but not had to edit size so not sure how you will find it:

    Available in 32 or 64 bit versions.

    You may be able to do this on your iPhone? I have had a play and seems like it's possible. I'm using IOS13.7. Be careful, may alter the original video.
    Try the edit function when the video is selected, then there should (may) be a crop function (looks like a square with 2 dotted arrows
    around it - bottom right corner). I could zoom in on the original video with this, move it around, etc. Can also trim video from either (or both) ends.
    Have a play.... (backup your videos first)
