    Best tool/effect to crop & fill retaining 16:9 aspect ratio?

    All my video was shot with the same camera in 1080p. I need to crop every clip (I shot my own video for a college class and the framing sucks big time). I will export to 720p, so I'm not concerned about losing resolution (again, it's for a college class). If I were using the NLE that I'm coming from, I literally would (1) click a crop button, (2) draw a rectange around the area I like, and (3) click on Done; and the selected area would then expand to fill the canvas with no stretching or black space around the outside.

    What is the best/easiest way to do essentially the same thing in MC?

    AMA link the footage in.

    Right click on the source clip.

    Choose source settings

    Select frame flex.

    Apply you zoomed in frame.

    Apply.

    Edit into sequence.

    (if you've already used this clip in a sequence you need to refresh the sequence to apply the adjusted framing)

    For a 720P output from 1080 you probably won't lose any quality as frameflex works on the source resolution.
