How to crop Screen Recordings under Snow Leopard?

The newest QT has a feature to record or capture the current screen. My iMac 27 is too big if I want to record the whole screen. Can I designate a region or an application window for recording? I could not find a way to do that. Not sure if I have to use alternative applications to do it.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I don't think you can do this directly while recording in QuickTime, but you can do it with QuickTime and iMovie.

I got the desired effect by

  1. Doing a full screen recording
  2. Opening the recording in iMovie
  3. Using the "Cropping, Ken Burns and Rotation" tool under the Windows menu to crop just the region I wanted to show.
  4. Export the iMovie to the desired format (under the iMovie Share menu)

doug, if you're going to vote-to-close a question, it's probably best not to post an answer to it. instead, place your answer on the duplicate. now that it's been closed-as-duplicate, go ahead and repost on the duplicate and delete this answer. – quack quixote Apr 20 '10 at 21:59
