How to “crop” a clip

Hi,

I need help with the following. I edit medical clips and need to remove the patient’s identification data on the edges of the clips. I recently upgraded from Premiere 6 to CS6. In the older version the “CROP” tool covered the cropped area with black and was not useful. The tool to use was “Image PAN” that allowed to keep just a portion of the image and discard the areas outside the “Image pan”. I would then export the remainder of the clip to its new size. For instance I would start from a 900 by 720 pixel clip and export the area of interest, such as 480 by 360 pixels. In the image i would like to keep just the area in the red box.

Any ways to do this in CS6 ? Any step-by-step technique ?

thanks for any suggestions
