Cutting out portions of a video frame.

What is a crop in ScreenFlow?

A crop in ScreenFlow is a feature that allows users to remove unwanted areas from the video frame. This is particularly useful when you want to focus on a specific part of the video or eliminate distractions from the background. The crop tool can be found in the video properties tab, and it allows you to adjust the dimensions of your video by dragging the edges of the frame to your desired size.

Cropping in ScreenFlow does not affect the original video file, it only changes the viewable area in the project you are working on. This means you can always revert back to the original frame size if needed. It's a non-destructive way of editing that gives you flexibility and control over your video content.

How to crop a video in ScreenFlow?

To crop a video in ScreenFlow, first, you need to open the video you want to crop in the ScreenFlow application. Once the video is open, select the video clip in the timeline that you want to crop. After selecting the clip, go to the video properties panel on the right side of the screen. Here, you will find the cropping option.

In the cropping option, you will see four different fields: Top, Bottom, Left, and Right. These fields allow you to adjust the amount of cropping you want to apply to your video. You can either manually enter the number of pixels you want to crop from each side or use the up and down arrows to adjust the crop. Once you are satisfied with your adjustments, click outside the cropping option to apply the changes. Remember to save your work to avoid losing your progress.

How to adjust the crop value in ScreenFlow?

In ScreenFlow, adjusting the crop value of a video clip or image is a straightforward process. First, select the clip or image you want to crop in your timeline. Once selected, navigate to the video properties tab on the right side of the screen. Here, you will find the cropping options.

There are four cropping fields: Top, Bottom, Left, and Right. You can adjust these values by either clicking and dragging the numbers up or down, or by typing in a specific value. As you adjust these values, you will see the changes reflected in the preview window. Once you are satisfied with the crop, simply click outside the properties tab to deselect the clip or image, and your changes will be saved.

Why is the crop value not working in ScreenFlow?

The crop value in ScreenFlow may not be working due to several reasons. One of the most common issues is that the software might not be updated to the latest version. Outdated versions often have bugs and glitches that can affect the functionality of certain features, including the crop value. Therefore, it's recommended to always keep your software updated to ensure all features work properly.

Another reason could be related to the specific settings or parameters you are using. If the crop value is not set correctly, it may not work as expected. Make sure you are entering the correct values and parameters for your specific needs. If you're still having trouble, it might be helpful to consult the ScreenFlow user manual or reach out to their customer support for further assistance.
