How To Change The Aspect Ratio Of A Video

Traditionally, monitors and televisions and camera displays have an aspect of ration of 16:9 - a rectangle shape. You probably remember back when TVs were a lot smaller - 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.
