Eliminating borders in iMovie!

Basic editing applications such as iMovie are missing quite a few important features that you can find in higher-end editing apps such as Final Cut Express or Final Cut Pro. Some of these features are still very useful to amateur editors however.

When you apply it, you can click "Configure" and choose how much horizontally and vertically you want to zoom.

You can download Eliminate Borders here from MacUpdate.
