    Since a picture can explain more, I've attached a shot of your YT video.

    Explain what is cropped. Is it the inner video overlay with black bars on the OS X background screen? Or is it the screen capture you did?

    The inner video suggests you are editing a 4:3 aspect ratio project but the lizard video is actually 16:9 content (or close to it). In iMovie choose "Project Properties..." under the File menu and then choose "Widescreen (16:9)" aspect ratio.

    In FCE, I believe you can do something similar with the sequence you setup. I'm not in a setup to test that right now.
