How To Change The Aspect Ratio Of A Video

You can change video aspect ratio with video editing software like VideoStudio. Follow along with our tutorial below to learn the easiest way to change video aspect ratio. Traditionally, monitors and televisions and camera displays have an aspect ratio of 16:9 - a rectangle shape (width by height). You probably remember back when a TV was a lot small - 4:3 - and today there’s plenty to be said about designing vertical videos for mobile devices or square videos for Instagram. Changing the aspect ratio of your video gives you plenty of options to play with and can really expand your video arsenal. Let's get to work.

  1. Install VideoStudio

    To install VideoStudio video editing software on your Windows PC, download and run the installation file above. Continue following instructions on the screen to complete the setup process on your system.

  2. Add video to the timeline

    With your video on the timeline, immediately under the preview pane, you will find a drop-down menu to help you change your video aspect ratio.

  3. Change the video aspect ratio

    Select the drop-down menu and select your desired video aspect ratio (16:9, 9:16, 4:3, 2:1 and more dimensions). Once you select your ratio, your project properties will update to reflect your chosen size. This is exactly what you need to set up your editing platform to edit portrait videos shot on your phone.

  4. Update video resolution

    Once you check your Aspect Ratio, you may want to update your video resolution to be optimized for the platform of your choice. To do this, go under ‘Settings’ and then ‘Project Properties’.

    After you add effects and edit your video you can choose to share it online via your website, blog, email, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other social media sites. Or you can save it to your computer in popular file formats. Make sure that the size of your video is correct for the program you are using on.
