Video Editing

I have a fraps video I want to convert. I've got VirtualDub, but the video was taken thru a scope, so I'd like to crop/zoom it in so that you don't see all that empty space. Any suggestions of free vid software that can do that sort of thing (or has a free trial)?

(Preferably that can play it in a format most people can read)


Virtual dub will do what you want.

Add the “null transform” filter to the clip, and you’ll notice that when it’s selected in the filters dialog, the “cropping” button is now active. Work your magic in there, and then you can proceed to compress/resize/whatever the video to the desired output format.

You can download a 30-day trial of Adobe Premiere Pro from

Seconded on virtualdub. I rip all my DVDs with that and you have to crop them to cut off the black bars at the top and bottom. It’s very easy once you get the hang of it.
I use virtualdubmod, but they’re both pretty much the same.
