Why crop video?

Below are three main reasons why you might want to crop a video.

1. Repurpose Video

Cropping existing content is awesome because you can reuse some of your gold content. It's easy to upload that content and fit it into a format for the desired social media platform you are trying to target. Repurposing is always a good idea.

2. Target Platform

You can crop your new videos also to fit a specific platform like Instagram. You can also target stories or 1080x1080 grid items. You may also want to crop things for YouTube or Twitter.

3. Target Device

You may be creating content to target a specific device. Story Creator is perfect for creating content that is tailor made for a phone or laptop.

To keep my audience engaged and excited for the weekly episodes I use Motionbox to promote the content. It's super easy to trim my podcast and add a visualizer.

Melissa Buening a Motionbox Customer

Motionbox helped me create short clips of longer videos that were perfect for sharing as social media posts for my client's campaign. The built-in subtitle feature and progressbar worked great. I even used the subtitle feature to quickly generate copy from the longer videos so that I could also create blog posts! It saved me so much time. If I could use Motionbox to create top-notch content for my client who is a Super Bowl champion, then I'd say it's a superb tool!
