It's important to make sure your videos fit the aspect ratio best suited for the platform you are using, be it square, horizontal, or vertical. This guide will help you with cropping and resizing your videos to fit the ratio of your chosen social media platform when sharing it.

The aspect ratio of a video refers to whether the video is horizontal (landscape mode, also referred to as 16:9), vertical (portrait mode, also referred to as 9:16), or square (a 1:1 aspect ratio)

Choose a Video

Select a video that you want to edit, click on the 3 dots menu (1), and choose Edit (2)

The Take Screen opens. Now, select the desired take by clicking the three-dot menu located beneath its name.

A pop-up window will appear, offering you the option to choose "Open Video Maker" in order to stylize your video.

📢 When you first open the Video Maker, it may take some time to generate the captions. Please be patient. Once finished, click again on Video Maker to see the captions. (This process can take a minute)

Aspect Ratio

Go to the Style button on the left sidebar and choose the desired Aspect Ratio

then you can choose: Crop or Add banners

Note: If you click "Crop" directly in the sidebar, your video will be cropped to the last format selected.

Interesting to know: When you crop a video, an AI tool from BIGVU automatically crops your video intelligently centered on the character.
