Here is how I do it.

I set a video mode for it.

Here are the settings I use:

Then when I get ready to make the new project, I select the video mode:

…which I find in Custom

And, as usual, @Elusien has a better solution.

Hey then is it so

I am running two Export jobs as a test; one using @Elusien’s method, the other using my usual method (both described above).

Here is what it looks like so far:

(This is a quick test; I did not take any of the necessary steps to change my editing to match the video mode.)

…and here is a framegrab from the first exported test video.

You have 2 options, either use the Size, Position, Rotate filter to stretch the video in the vertical direction, but everything will look terribly distorted; or use the Crop-Source filter to extract just the centre part of the video, discarding anything that is on the left and right sides of the video.

As a test, I have used the SPR to move and crop the video; here is how it is going so far; as you can see, the final product is about a half-hour into the future.

The SPR filter (there are multiple ones running at once) has brought my CPU once again to its knees begging for mercy.

Since the OP probably doesn’t need distortion the Crop-Source filter is a better bet, especially as it is much less of a CPU hog.

SPR is simply my familiar workhorse.
