Vertical Video in Adobe Premiere Pro - Insights from Shitty Fashion Photographer, Eli Samuel.

TUTORIAL FILES: Vertical video template

Geez, Instagram you are messing up the status quo! Vertical video is a fact of life now, spending a $10,000 video rig on its side is just about the most undignified thing you can do but ah what can you do. Adobe Premire Pro has some major difficulties in being able to process the vertical video but here is the fix. Step by step. 

Drop the ‘Vertical video template’ into the time line.

It will black out the edges. When you’re finished and ready to export go ahead.

Once you are on the export screen, go to the top left corner and click source, click the crop symbol, and select 9:16.

Swap your weight and height. Then export. Done.

Happy Instagramming people. 


Keep Shooting beautiful people! 

Yours creatively always, 

Eli Samuel.

A Little About Me. #bio #nerd #aspiration 

My name is Eli Samuel, my passion is to empower artists to bring a little bit more beauty into the world one image at a time. I am a little nerdy, a little crass and an endless chatterbox. Blogging is my way of giving back. I read the posts published by the photographic heroes regularly like Steve Huff, Ken Rockwell etc. I thought to myself, stop being selfish! My dream is to grace the cover of Vogue Italia. I am coming for you Vogue! Help me get there.
