I am new to shotcut and this forum. My experience with shotcut has been very positive ! I have finished editing a video—which was filmed on portrait on my iPhone.
The video does not take up the full screen and has two black vertical blocks next to it ! With the video in between. When I attempted to export the video onto YouTube the video still did not take up the full screen. How can I get rid of the black lines on the side and have the video take up the full screen.
Any advice will be appreciated
You can export a portrait video as landscape and fill the whole screen, but of course it will have to chop off some of the footage. So either your head will be cut off or you will have just your head in the video and not your body. Is this what you intend? \or you could stretch it sideways and be 3 times wider.
The tutorial doesn’t just talk about rotating the video. It also demonstrates a method of filling that empty space by duplicating the video twice which is why I shared it with you because it’s relevant to your case. Go watch the video I linked you to from 5:03 onward.
