Screen Recording

Currently I am attempting to put together some PD Videos together using the screen recording feature in Wevideo. Everything works great except when I bring the video into the timeline it’s not in the wide screen mode but instead has the black bars on the sides and looks like the 4:3 format. Any suggestions?

Thanks for reaching out here @joseph.risteau Would you happen to have a screenshot of what you’re seeing? I can run it by the team. Alternatively reach out to support@wevideo.com to troubleshoot.

Here is a screenshot of what I see. I reached out to the support team a few days ago but have not heard back.

Thanks, will keep you posted @joseph.risteau I’m noticing you don’t have a profile picture yet. Please upload one so that we can put a face to the name. Super excited to get to know you in the community! :partying_face:

Your video will automatically be changed to fit the formatting of the video you are working on. Looks like you have it set to square mode and not Horizontal 16:9 mode.

To screen record…
Click Record: Screen: OK
Chose Audio Source Click: Next
Choose “Application Window” Then actually choose the application window you want by clicking on it- in your case the WeVideo application window. Click: Share
This will record in the ratio that you have set up on your computer. Did you full screen the application window to make sure it recorded in the 16:9 ratio? Are you working on a computer that is set to a different window ratio such as old monitor or Smartboard?
Good luck! I will try to problem-solve with you if you post here again if my directions did not help. :slight_smile:

Thanks for this @janice.wenger You rock! That’s correct, If you select the menu icon at the top left of the editor and click “Change format”, you can switch from square to either vertical or horizontal. Love how the community is helping one another out :blue_heart:
