    Note that if you click without holding the "Ctrl" key, the scale of the entire image will be adjusted.
    For this reason, it is important to hold down the "Ctrl" key if you want to crop the clip without losing proportions. For this tutorial, let's crop out the top and bottom.

    Once you have finished cropping, you can click and drag the same anchor points without holding the "Ctrl" key.
    This will resize, or stretch vertically, the clip so that it fits the screen resolution setting.
