|Summary||0000275: Cropping tool in the Compositor does not Crop as expected.|
|Description||It looks like the crop tool in the Compositor applies the crop to every track and indeed to the current project (???) and so can not crop a single track.|
Sam had created a short video showing how to crop by working with the projector and camera automation:
There needs to be a better way to crop the way users expect it to work -- maybe the results Sam demonstrated can be put into a crop tool so that the manual setup work can be avoided.

The translation was then changed by me (de.po):
msgstr: "Crop a layer or output (F7). Changes image format and aspect ratio of the project"
"msgid" has not been changed yet.
The shown solution with camera and projector worked for the forum, but is not a replacement for the cropping tool, because the aspect ratio cannot be changed with it. (Sam certainly knows that.)
The "easiest" solution would be to add a switch to the crop dialog that determines whether only the active layers are cropped or the whole project.
