Rendered crop different than as appears in preview

In VP 16, build 424 I have one piece of footage where the rendered crop is different than the crop I worked up in the project preview display (rendering to magix AVC/AAC mp4). This happened once before and I got it to render accurately by changing "Maintain aspect ratio" to NO (this of course meant the preview then displayed it inaccurately though). I tried that again on this current bit of footage but without success this time. Getting it to render correctly would be great but the real goal is to simply have the preview display be a true representation of what the render will look like across the board. Here's the media info for the footage outside VP:

Are your project properties set to 1920x1080 or some other 16:9 ratio? Some other ratio?

Post your render properties with a screenshot such as this...

This is how I would approach your project...

Thanks John. Sorry for the delayed reply. I've been away most of the month. Thanks for the video demonstration. I'm not totally certain I grasped how exactly to apply that to my situation but I'll certainly keep that in mind when starting new projects. Is there any thing I can address specifically with this clip's crop which is failing to render as it appears in preview? All the other clips in the project are rendering just as they appear in the preview window.
