This is in the rendering mode I want to cut from both top and bottom and maybe some from the sides the black rectangle background :


This is how it looks like in the layout :


When I mean to cut from the top bottom and sides I mean something like that. I did it in pain just to show what I mean but I want it in the blender so the animation when doing later CTRL + F12 to be in that rectangle size and not like in the first screenshot :

How I want it to be

When I'm doing CTRL + F12 to render the animation it's creating on the hard disk 100 frames that's 100 png images this is the output properties settings :

And this is example of image on the hard disk how it is now before making the cutting :

Png image on the hard disk and I want it to be like in the third screenshot

Tried changing resolution :

Layout after changed resolution/s

But this is when I changed the mode to Rendering it looks like as before like there are no changes at all :

In rendering it looks like it didn't change anything

And this is one of the images on the hard disk after did CTRL + F12 after changed the resolution on Y to 260 :

After changed resolution it changed also the text resolution look at the third screenshot comparing to this one

You change that in the "Context", which is the printer-like symbol:


It has Resolution X and Y properties that will affect the cameras:

Camera rectangle

  • $\begingroup$ I tried it now clicked on the top right on the Camera then in the printer where the resolution is I changed the Y to 260 but when I click on Rendering it looks like before like it didn't change only on Layout it's changed. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I updated my question with two screenshots more after changed the resolution/s it should be like that in the Rendering ? It seems like I see the changes only in the layout. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @BenziAvrumi: did you re-render (Ctrl+F12) after changing the resolution? If you just go to the "Rendering" tab, it will display whatever there was before. $\endgroup$ Jul 15, 2020 at 11:46
  • $\begingroup$ I did CTRL + F12 now and it did create the images with the rectangle cut like I wanted the problem is that it's also changed the text resolution the text is not that smooth and sharp like in the third screenshot in my question. I added now the screenshot example of how it looks like on the hard disk now. $\endgroup$
