Vertical video is on the rise – and brands can’t afford to ignore it much longer! Investing time in vertical videos is something you’ll never regret.
If you’re new to vertical videos and ready to get started to jump on this trend. Read on!
We’re going to be showing you how you could actually record vertical videos directly from OBS so if you’re going to be uploading to platforms like TikTok, Instagram Snapchat, or even YouTube shorts you know that it’s in a vertical video format so basically it’s going to look something like this instead of being your normal widescreen 16×9.
Here are 4 easy steps to create vertical videos in OBS.
Step 1 Create a new profile specifically for vertical videos. Go to “Profile” > “Add Profile” > Create a name for the profile.
Step 2 Duplicate your scene for vertical format. Simply right-click the Scene, and choose “Duplicate”.
Step 3 Change video resolution to vertical format. Go to “Settings” > “Video”. Even though OBS does give you some options it’s based on the graphics card and monitor that you have. You could actually change this manually. In this case, we want a vertical video, so we want the opposite of 1920 by1080 for both Base Resolution and Output Resolution. Then apply the settings.
Step 4 Adapt scenes to vertical format. Once the video settings are applied, you will see some parts of the video source are cut off. Do a little drag-and-move to make the vertical videos look right.
