# Crop out only a side of a video

I need to crop out only the left side of a video. Assuming this image is the video, i want to crop out the black side and maintain only the blue part.

• Instead of black do you need nothing (crop) or transparency (Alpha 0)? – josh sanfelici Sep 20 '16 at 11:08

With the strip selected, in the properties panel in strip input check image offset and image crop.
Under image crop enter the amount you want to crop to the left box and under image offset enter the same number in the x box.
