If you want to upload your video, you’ll need to know precisely what aspect ratio means. Otherwise, you might end up uploading a vertical video to YouTube, or a horizontal video to your IG stories, which is far from ideal.
An aspect ratio is a proportional relationship between a video’s width and height. So if you have a video with a 1:1 aspect ratio, it means your video will be square because the width and height will have the same length.
It’s crucial you remember that the format for aspect ratio is width: height, meaning the width comes first, and the height second.
There are many aspect ratios, with the main ones being:
Now you don’t need to worry about what aspect ratios your video is. You can choose the aspect ratio you want while you are uploading the video to FilmForth.
Well, that depends on where you want to upload your video.
Remember to take this into account when filming a video. If you want to upload it to Instagram, try to shoot it vertically so you can stick to a 9:16 aspect ratio, otherwise just film it horizontally.
Nowadays, many people recommend shooting your video vertically, as 3 out of 5 videos are viewed on a mobile device.
Personally, if I’m making a video that is meant to be shared with friends and family, then I’ll shoot it vertically, but if the video is meant to be uploaded to video platforms, I’ll shoot it horizontally. The decision is yours.
This is a question many people have asked me since they wanted to upload a video to YouTube, but they didn’t want to rotate it by downloading an app.
The thing is a few years ago YouTube received an update on which they removed their editing functionalities, which means you won’t be able to rotate videos there. So if you need to rotate a video, you should do so before uploading it to the platform.
Obviously, FilmForth is not the only video editing tool you can use to rotate videos, but it’s the one that will make the task easiest for you.
Also, remember that Film Forth is totally free to download and contains no watermark. In case you want to try other Windows 10 apps, here is a few of them that can also get the task done:
