To crop a clip in the browser-based editor, follow these steps:

  1. Click on a clip in your timeline to select it. Once selected, a thin blue outline will appear around the clip.
  2. Click the screencastify-crop-iconcrop icon. Your mouse will then become a cropping tool.
  3. Drag your mouse across the video preview to the desired dimensions.
  4. Click the crop icon again to save your changes. Everything part of the video outside of the area you selected will be deleted (in the selected clip only).


When you crop a clip in the editor, only the selected clip will be cropped. No other clips in your timeline will be affected.
