So, i have this video but i only need the face in the video. Is there anyway to crop everything else? like how you crop out things in pictures in Photoshop. Is that possible? Cause i don't need it rendering the whole video, just want the face and audio.

Also, when rendering, which would be the quickest/best quality for something like this if its possible.

What i am doing is wanting to have the face from this footage with the audio and place it on top of another video. So you can see the person's commentary while the main video is playing.

Thanks so much if you can help :)

You can use a rectangular mask to isolate the part of the image you want to keep and then reposition that on top of the video you want to run in the background.
