How To Change Video Aspect Ratio

When creating a video, chances are the aspect ratio will be 16:9 - this is the landscape format of most TV and computer screens. But if for some reason you need to create something a little different - a square video for Instagram maybe, or a vertical video that works better on mobile devices, you can change the aspect ratio in moments. Check the guide below to find out more.
