Hi, Gerry. I don't see a custom setting option in M100 (doesn't mean that there isn't one) but could you export a 1920x1080 from Media 100 and then get the crop you want outputting the custom res using Compressor, MPEG Streamclip or similar?

Assuming that you want to edit in 1920x1080, and crop the result: you can do that during export. When you choose export as other->QuickTime movie, you can set an export size in the export options. There you can enter your size manually, and you can choose to crop the image to preserve the aspect ratio. I would suggest a short test to see if your result looks as you expect.

Thanks Marcus and Floh. I tried that option from media 100 while exporting but it does not really export properly when cropped. Yes the cropping dimensions were correct but the video was streched sideways and rendered the video with chubby people.
The video is at
The video is a same day edit for a wedding entirely in media100 with color fx used
What I did was export quicktime and cropped it in premiere with 1080x826. I just hoping media 100 can get the cropping correct within media 100. Thanks Guys
Gerry

I recently had a stretching issue on importing footage from an iPod that was taken with the wrong orientation [tall-screen instead of wide-screen]. I solved it, by doing a composition clip and importing the footage into the Boris Red composition, getting it as I wanted it, saving and rendering.

I only have a Media100 demo running on an external Yosemite hard drive I only sometimes boot into, so I'll have to wait until I next boot it up, to have a play about and see what else I can find that might help you do what you want.

Oh! I've seen your video now, and realise a composition clip wouuldn't work, since you'd be constricted by the timeline's resolution. You're looking for a crop, not just letter boxing. Sorry!

Have tried this myself now.

I saw the option to preserve aspect ratio using crop,
but it still squashes the image.

It's as though Media100 is trying to squash it to the resolution before Quicktime gets a chance to crop it.

I've had success exporting a byref movie from Media100, opening it up in Quicktime Player 7, and then exporting via File->Export and entering similar Quicktime Movie Options to what I originally set in Media100.

My guess is, somewhere in the move away from Quicktime to AVFoundation and/or the move from 32-bit to 64-bit, the options in Media100 to crop a Quicktime file on export, are just plain ignored.

What's interesting, is that you can still put a Quicktime component in the Macintosh HD->Library->Components folder, and you'll be able to use it in the Media 100 Export file dialogue box.
I just chucked in XiphQT.component and now I can export to Theora and Ogg from within Media100. Only catch is, the components don't let you chose a crop size. >_<.
The components do show up as codecs in the Quicktime Movie options also, if I want to choose them from there. But these are the same Quicktime options whose size and crop settings weren't working earlier, =S, and a change in codec doesn't make a difference.
So what can we do?

Export by ref,
open the ref file in Quicktime Player 7,
and go to File->Export, and set the crop settings there.

It's not really "in" Media100, but at least with a byref file, you're not rendering/converting twice.

Quicktime X wouldn't open the byref file when I tried.

I made a video of the problem, the same night I was posting to this forum:
