I'm taking a video I made for youtube in 1920 x 1080 that I want to fit formats on intagram which are 1080 x 1080. I've taken the video rendered at 1920 x 1080 an dropped into a blender sesson set at 1080 x 1080. I've then shrunk down the video. so I am left with a gap and a chunk of the frame from the 1920x 1080 chopped off.

Heres a screen shotenter image description here. I hope this problem is clear? Im expecing to have the 1920 x 1080 to maintain its ratio and for there to be gaps at the top and bottom?

thank you very much.

    $\begingroup$ If you want to use a larger video in a smaller project you will discover some serious design flaws in the video sequence editor. I'd advise you to do the transform with the compositor. $\endgroup$ – Leander Mar 27 '19 at 13:49
  • $\begingroup$ uh oh, i haven't use the compositor before. what do I do here? $\endgroup$ – Joel Ramsbottom Mar 27 '19 at 14:21
  • $\begingroup$ In your transform strip properties set the Scale to 1.0x0.55. Works for me with a 1920x1080 source video and Blender set to 1080x1080 and rendered to video fine. $\endgroup$ – rob Mar 27 '19 at 14:22
  • $\begingroup$ @ rob I tried the transform but I was hoping to illustrate in the screenshot that despite scale the screen blender and lopped off part of the original frame, its just not there? edit I see what you mean....that will work for now thats very much!!...it would be good it work out the ration so you don't how to judge the scalling? $\endgroup$ – Joel Ramsbottom Mar 27 '19 at 14:27

    $\begingroup$ You can do this in the VSE. Use image offset, and then resize. Read: Rescaling in the VSE $\endgroup$ – user1853 Mar 27 '19 at 15:20
