Hi Craig,

I just wondered if anyone has requested yet a template overlay of some kind so we can design 9:16 videos for Reels easily? Of if you have a suggested workaround for this when designing a 9:16 video? It would be great to see where to put the titles and text etc so that it displays well in reels and doesn’t get cut off. Would save lots of time in my workflow as we move towards the reels format which has mostly taken over from videos in social feeds. Thanks Charley

@Charlene Hickey LOL We were just talking about this. I assume you mean how the sides get cut off? As I understand it, this is a phone issue more than anything. Reels accepts 9:16 videos, but if a phone is taller than that, and skinnier, the apps aren’t adjusting for it as they should. So, not sure we will do a template, but maybe create some guides for people. Thanks for letting me know. In the meantime, we are just going to start making the titles not go all the way to the edge of the screen.
