How to crop a single track
Hi there. I love Cinelerra GG but I'm still a... "noob"...
I'm editing a video with some video tracks and I want to apply a crop on a single track. However, the crop tool applies the crop to every tracks. Is there a way to "tell" the compositor windows I just want to apply the crop to track X?
I've googled a lot and read some manuals but I found no way to do this.
I also tried that, but the crop is still applying to every tracks! 🙄
Unfortunately it doesn't work with the cropping feature in the viewer, I was wrong about that too. But you can work with the Projector and the Camera Automation.

Nice workaround! 😀
I'll try that! Thanks a lot!
You're welcome. I had to try it out myself until I came up with the solution, because I thought just like Phyllis that locking the track would work, but somehow the viewer actually applies it to all tracks, despite the track being locked.
Since I needed to also crop some part of the bottom of the track, I wasn't able to complete the work with projector and camera automation. So, I added a track below with a black image and used the mask tool. The final result was great! 🙂 It's also nice because I can also add a blue image instead and apply a chroma key to mix the result with another track below. 🙂
I'm getting less amateur... I guess... 🤔 😜
Sorry for the incorrect response earlier as somehow I replaced in my mind the "crop tool" with "simply deleting" - I guess I was thrown off by the statement that you were a "noob".
But, anyone who reads this, we need some good suggestions for the Compositor Crop Tool. It does not seem to be very useful at this time, unless we are missing something.
