How to have proper video size with iMovie for MAC

Problem

You wish to edit a video with iMovie, by mixing different video sources. You see that, in the mixed video, the size of the original videos is cropped, and appears smaller than the original. You do not like this.

Solution

  1. From the bottom panel with the source videos, select the video that appears cropped
  2. Press ‘C’ or the ‘crop’ icon close to the ‘microphone’ icon
  3. Select ‘Fit’ on the right-top panel
  4. Select ‘Done’ on the right-top panel
  5. Now, drag-and-drop your selected video to the Project panel on top and it should not appear cropped anymore

Notes

Tried on:

Mac OS X 10.8.4
iMovie 9.0.8
