cropping and frame size help...

I'm currently working on a project that I filmed on super 8. I have the digital HD files which dont exactly fill the 1920x1080 frame.

I would like to crop just the image out and use the abnormal frame size... this way I can run some of my clips through the "smooth cam" filter.

I've been trying for a few days now to get rid of the bars on the side and work just with the image.... Any suggestions. I would like to avoid scaling to fit the frame.

Re: cropping and frame size help...

What are the dimensions of these "HD' files that don't fit the frame? You can edit in 720HD and get a perfectly good result.
