    Converting (cropping) 4:3 video to 16:9 in iMovie
    Does anyone know of a way to take a 4:3 video and "convert" it to 16:9 in iMovie?

    Basically I have some in-car shots that I have taken on a track day, but unlike the camcorder which has a true 16:9 mode, the bullet camera used for the in-car shots doesn't and only outputs 4:3. I can't figure out how I can crop the footage (removing parts either from top or bottom or both if need be) in iMovie.

    The annoying thing is that I can do it on my PC with ULeads software I am using iMovie 6.0.3

    Any help appreciated!

    There should be an option just before you create the project (give the project a name), where you can choose 4:3 or 16:9.
