Learn PowerPoint 2011 for Mac: Crop Movie Clips

You can crop a movie clip on your PowerPoint slide in almost the same way you crop a picture. Before you crop though, ascertain whether PowerPoint’s Crop option will help enhance your inserted movie — don’t just do a crop if it adds no extra value to your movie clip. The Crop option allows you to remove non-required areas of a movie — for example, if the subject of your movie is a person speaking who is surrounded by a large, distracting background of other people or moving objects, you may want to crop the movie so that the cropped movie now focuses more on the speaker, and gets rid of all the extra distractions.
