Hi, Bella, you just need to adjust the frame size to crop it out. And here is a detailed tutorial: how to crop videos. Best regards,
How do you crop sides if a video out with Movie Maker ? Like if someone is standing in the corner of your video & you want them cropped out?
Hi, Michaeld, there maybe some misunderstanding. Wafaa012 still had trouble for uploading the video because that he didn't save the splitted segments into separate videos. Just do as Samuel suggested, and it will be smooth uploading.
So what Samuel is basically saying is that this instructional web sites means absolutely nothing because split does absolutely nothing.
Hi, Wafaa012 In WLMM, you never edit the actual original video files, just copies of them. So, import 2 times, and each time delete the other part and save a long video into separate files, and upload them respectively. Tips: make sure your the trimmed videos are less than 15 minutes. If necessary, increase upload limit by verifying your account.
Even after the film is split when I go to share on youtube it says the video is too long, it still recognizes the video as one long do i upload each individual "split" ???
