Your output is based on your original project settings. So, if your original file was 16:9 and you try to output some odd shape, it's still going to output it in a 16:9 video frame.
You can't go from 16:9 to a 9:16 output.
Thanks Steve. So it appears there is no setting for a new project to handle this, I knew this was an oddball case, and not typical, but was hoping there was a way.
Thanks for the quick reply.
How do you plan on delivering and displaying the vertical output?
Will you be mounting a TV set on the wall in portrait orientation, or some other method?
Depending on exactly what you need, there might be other, non-traditonal ways to accomplish this, though will likely be compromises.
If you are rotating you physical TV set. there a a few free routines available that rotate your image so you only need to produce the file normally so that if viewed nor,mall it looks like it is designed to be viewed by people lyind on their side!
Everying would also be on its side while you were editing whick might make titles difficult.
Sorry, this only applies to viewing it on a comnputer
All - Thanks for the feedback. The video is to be played only on a smartphone. The player should recognize the difference between a 720x480 and 480x720 and place the controls accordingly in landscape or portrait. But I see that probably my only option is to create an extremely oversized project and crop it, post sharing. I havent decided yet if its worth the effort to re-do everything.
