Probably too special to spend an extra GUI function for it? I did that when adding wide content (e.g. scope) to a flat or full container, and then shifting subtitles into the letterbox bars. Is this to be used for actual presentations, or export for screeners?

But I often thought wether it could be useful to have 'negative cropping', that way adding black to a non-letterboxed source from any side. It would be an elegant way to allow this, using the existing controls. At one point, it would probably be handy to have a 'scaling/cropping' reset to defaults button.

Maybe adding a bounding box to subs would be a more universal solution, if it could be set to a fixed size as well?
