Crop an Animation
You can crop the entire animation to change the animation's dimensions. Guides are used to determine the area of the animation that you want to keep. To create guides, you must have the rulers showing. Go to the View menu and choose Show Rulers. You will see rulers along the top and left sides of the Preview area.
Click the ruler to create a guide. You will see a guide across the frame and a guide handle
on the ruler.
Create four guides to frame the area that you want to keep. The area outside the guides will be cropped.
Click the Play button
to preview the animation
and make sure every frame displays correctly within the guides.
Click and drag a guide handle
if you need to adjust a guide location. Go to the Edit menu
and choose Crop to Guides
. All of the frames in the animation
will be cropped to the guide lines.
