Custom cropping settings

Oct 3, 2014 at 3:05 PM
I have been using a custom profile to crop out tickers from the bottom of the screen (120 pixels cut from the bottom). Somewhere along the line either an update or a maybe an unintentional setting change seems to have disabled this custom crop.

I'm running 2.3.15. I have cropping disabled in the advanced settings for this conversion task. My custom profile includes the following crop setting for handbrake: --crop 0:120:0:0, but my logs shows the final conversion using --crop 0:0:0:0.

Does the "Disable Cropping" setting now override the custom profile setting? Should I deselect this, or is there some other setting influencing the final crop setting?
