How To Create 4K Vertical Videos In iMovie for macOS

This is part 2 of my tutorial on editing vertical videos in iMovie for macOS. This new guide allows you export your edited portrait video in 4k.

You can check out part 1 by clicking here.

Video Transcript

Launch iMovie and create a new movie project.

Drag the video you wish to edit into the timeline and go the cropping tool.

Rotate the clip clockwise and start editing the video. Whatever image or video you add to your project has to be rotated clockwise.

Unfortunately you cannot use titles in this mode, as titles cannot be rotated.

Once you’re done editing the video, simply export it by setting resolution to 4K, Quality to Custom highest bitrate and Compression to Better Quality.

Open your video in Quicktime Player to preview it.

To flip the video into vertical mode, click on Edit, Rotate Left and then save the new video.

Open the new video in Quicktime again to preview it. It will be a perfect vertical video with no black spaces at the sides.

Resolution is set at 2160 by 3840p.

Do have a great weekend. Bye
