Crop videos to meet exact social media specifications.

It seems like every social media platform has unique video specifications, and it can get confusing which is which, especially when you’re in the thick of creating. Crop videos to landscape, portrait, or square orientation in common aspect ratios for platforms like Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram, including 16:9, 9:16, and 1:1. It only takes seconds to choose your video orientation, then you can get to customizing, saving, and sharing your videos anywhere online.

Repurpose your videos without reinventing the wheel.
