Auto Reframe

Powered by AI technology, Auto Reframe automatically detects the focal point of your video and crops it, always keeping in frame. This way the main action or object of your video never goes out of sight.

You can opt to manually change the focal point of your video or choose an aspect ratio that fits your preference, depending on the social platform you wish to upload the video to.

Step 4: Preview the reframed video and check

After adjusting the settings and reframing, you can view the preview of your final video. In case the video needs more work, you can also play and pause it at the point you want to adjust the frame and move the framing box to the position you desire. Do the same for the whole video just by dragging the frame window with your mouse. You can use tools such as Undo, Redo, Next Edit Point, and Previous Edit Point at the bottom menu.
