Cropping a Video with Movavi Video Editor

Essentially cropping a video involves removing a section of its frame, and is frequently used to delete any black bars from videos or alter their aspect ratio. At the same time however it is much more powerful than that, and can be used to re-frame the video and focus the attention of viewers more effectively on certain parts.
