I'm trying to export a 9:16 clip from a 16:9 video to upload to spotify to be used as a spotify canvas video loop.
My original video is 3840:2160.
I set the sequence to then export to 1215:2160 which is 9:16
When I go to export the video it gets set to 1214:2160.
I am exporting using current version of Premiere and encoder as an mp4 file using the H264 codec
If I try to change the width back to 1215 it simply reverts back to 1214.What is going on here?
I second that. I just tried it on my system, almost all codecs won't accept a width of 1215. Only Apple ProRes does.
You need to use even numbers.
Choose numbers you can devide by 4.
1216 would be a better choice.
Thanks very much this makes total sense.
The math that ended up making this work was as follows.
Start with 1215x2160
then divide by 5
then multiply by 4
you get 972x1728
Then change the size of the video in the sequence to 80% as you have made the size of the video 20% smaller.
TIL A simple explanation if you're curious to know more.
Thanks for this extra info!
