In the meanwhile – let’s have a look at how to crop a recording with the help of the existing one.

  2. Resize the video if needed

    If you don’t need resizing, just proceed to the next step.

    The best thing to do is to pick one of the social media symbols below the player and decide on a post type.

    Select social media icon in Cropping Video App

    That’s the fastest way to prepare your visual for posting on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat or any other popular social media.

    Select preset in Cropping Video App

    If you aren’t going to post your video on social networks, you can just select an aspect ratio. Hit the “Custom” button and choose 9:16, 1:1, 4:5 or another one.

    Click on Custom in Cropping Video App

    Set the needed height or width in pixels if needed, and the second parameter will be set automatically according to the selected aspect ratio.

    Input resolution in Croppin Video App

    As an alternative, hit the chain sign between the boxes to deactivate it, and insert both parameters manually without reference to aspect ratio.

  3. Crop the video

    There are two options available:

    • Fit the recording with the frame, expanding it with the help of two fingers.
    • Crop your video in Cropping Video App
    • Fill the frame with the video so that there are no borders left.
    • Resize video in Cropping Video App

    In both cases, you can zoom the recording in or out. If there are borders left, you can change a background colour or blur it.
