Even if some of the features are distorted I want the video to fill the frame. I don't want the black areas filling the frame. I know I can select freeform in crop but sometimes it still leaves too small a video. Could someone tell me how to stretch the video to fill the entire frame after I've cropped it? Thanks

Hi FrancoisT -

In PiP Designer, you can uncheck "Maintain Aspect Ratio" and stretch the clip as you wish.

Also, if you right click on the clip, make the selections shown in the attached screenshots.

Cheers - Tony

I'm not able to bring up anything like what you displayed in your screenshot. When I'm in PIP I get none of those options as I'm showing in my own screenshot. I did this some months ago but with a break can't figure it out now. Thanks

In the screenshot that you attached put a checkmark on the Object settings to expand it in the PiP Designer. There you will see the checkbox for Maintain aspect ratio.
You can also do it the way Tony already explained earlier.

At first I was looking for a box to put a checkmark in and couldn't find it. Then I clicked on "object settings" and it expanded and I saw the aspect ratio section. Thanks for your help!
