Not enough features to edit mobile videos/shorts.#1771

I’ve been trying to use Medal to edit shorts for YouTube. For many games, a thin slice of the screen is not enough for viewers to see what is going on (see image): https://i.imgur.com/FUFZqNd.png

To solve this a common editing technique is to shrink the video so more of it is visible on mobile. You then fill the gaps above and below the video with a blurred copy of the video like in this clip: https://www.youtube.com/shorts/mzOCfbXVzIU

As far as I can tell, there is no way to do this in Medal. And this is completely useless to me: https://i.imgur.com/mlot6jG.png

Shorts are the lifeblood of channel growth right now, so I can’t use Medal if I can’t make shorts effectively with it.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention! This is something we should fix, so we will start working on it.
