Project Dimensions (Canvas Size)

The canvas displays a preview of how the final video will look when produced and shared. If you choose to change the size of the video, set the canvas dimensions to the same size you plan to produce your final video.

 

When changing canvas dimensions, keep these things in mind:

  • The canvas dimensions must be at least 640 x 480 to include a table of contents (TOC) or quiz/survey.
  • Change the canvas or editing dimensions before you begin editing your video. Changing the dimensions after editing can skew the look of work already completed.

 

Change the Canvas Dimensions

  1. Over the canvas, click the Magnification dropdown > Project Settings.

Change the Editing Frame Rate

To edit and produce a video at a high frame rate (60 fps), your timeline must include high frame rate video clips.

 

Over the canvas, select Magnification dropdown > Project Settings > Frame Rate dropdown to change the editing frame rate.
