  1. Hi all, first-time poster

    I recorded a video on my phone.

    When I import it into VSDC it seems to have gutter/padding around it, as shown here (yellow arrows denote padding):

    I don't know where this is coming from. When I play the video in, say, Windows Media Player, the paddinng isn't there. And in VSDC, if I go Crop > Custom region, the video displays without padding.

    Basically I just want the canvas to match the video size/dimensions. Is this possible? (Obviously I'd need to rotate it too, but I'll deal with it after solving this issue).

    Thanks in advance!

    Have you dropped it into a widescreen project?

    Rotating it (probably) WILL solve the issue.

    Odds are you shot it in portrait mode (so ~1080 x 1920) and your editor is using landscape mode widescreen (~1920 x 1080). If you do the math, you will see that what you are experiencing will look exactly like how it tries to accommodate the discrepancy, with auto-generated padding/borders.

  4. Thank you for the replies. Rotating it in VSDC did not solve the issue but it's true that I seem to have recorded the video in portrait mode (my fault - it should have been landscape.) I'll try again!
