Improving Performance& Troubleshooting
When you click the New Project button on the welcome screen, you will be taken to this screen, which is Filmora’s default interface.
If you forgot to set the aspect ratio from the welcome screen, or if you wanted to use a different aspect than the defaults. You can do so by choosing "Project Settings" from the File menu.
Now, you can pick the correct aspect ratio, resolution, and frame rate from the Project Settings window. To use a custom aspect ratio, what you have to do is to change the resolution.
For example, if you are making an Instagram video, change the resolution to 1080 by 1350 and Filmora will automatically set aspect ratio for you. You can lock the aspect ratio by clicking on this lock icon here.
The video aspect ratio is the video width in proportion to the height. This ratio describes how wide your video is.
For example, a video with a 16:9 aspect ratio would not be 16 px wide and 9 px tall. You wouldn’t be able to see a video that small. One resolution that has an aspect ratio of 16:9 is 1920 px by 1080 px.
The resolution of our project is measured in how many pixels wide and how many pixels tall the video is. By default, Filmora projects will start with the resolution of 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels high. Since this is the standard scale of full HD video, we can freely change the resolution by modifying the number on each box.
The frame rate is the number of frames a video will show within a second. Many digital video cameras shoot at 23.976 and 29.97 frames per second. These are the standards in countries that use the NTSC system.
The 25 and 50 frames/second are used by the cameras in countries that use the PAL system. Most movies work in 24 frames/sec.
Some TV shows and home cameras work in 30 frames per second which reflects a realistic motion similar to what we are used to seeing in real life.
Anything higher than 30 frames per second is mainly used to create slow motion. Though some people primarily gamers tend to work with higher frame rates like 60 frames per second.
If you are making videos to post on social media like YouTube, most frame rates should work fine. But it is ideal to match the settings of whatever footage your camera took. By default, Filmora will ask you if you want to match the settings of your footage when you drag the first clip into the editor from the media panel.
