I want to crop (as in, take a subset of each frame, like when you crop a photo) a video in Windows Live Movie maker. Is there a way to do this, and failing that is there another free tool i can use to do that?

I've used Windows Live Movie Maker for a while, and am 99.99% sure that it doesn't provide the ability to crop frames in a movie.

VirtualDub (here) I've heard is a decent free video editor that can be used to crop videos (e.g. to remove those black bars and to rotate frames).

Windows Movie Maker unable to crop? that is pretty sad.. talk about a basic feature that was'nt implemented. –  Etienne Dupuis Nov 12 '12 at 19:44

I'd use Avidemux. Free, and portable version avaliable for Windows. Download page , Crop howto . (Even supports multi-threading which was the original reason why I started to use it. Awesome software. :))

After trying both this and VirtualDub, i prefer the other. Thanks for the suggestion though! –  RCIX Apr 9 '10 at 8:10
