Vertical, Square, Horizontal… there are so many formats for our media nowadays! It’s hard to know what format you need when going into content capture mode. Good thing we can transfer between platforms and formats! In this Tutorial Tuesday video I’ll show you three ways to turn your vertical photo (this would work for vertical videos too, you know!) into something that can be shown in a horizontal video for Final Cut Pro X.
This is stupid-simple, and it has gotten me out of trouble more than a dozen times. After editing and exporting your video, always, always, ALWAYS… watch it. I know these are usually tutorials, but I encountered this very issue with my video editing and projects and I thought it would be pertinent to share it with you. Happy Editing! Katie
Final Cut Pro X updated, and with it went some apperance changes. In order to grow the clips in both the timeline and clip archives, you must now click a new button, or use the shortcut Command +. To shrink the clips, use Command -. This shortcut makes each second of footage take up either more space or less space.
