You can create videos in dslrBooth in any orientation: Landscape, Portrait, or Square. The video overlay feature uses your selected orientation that is set under Settings, Video Settings, Orientation.
Horizontal Videos - Camera should be horizontal. Set Orientation setting to 0 or 180 degrees if camera is upside down.
Vertical Videos - Camera should be rotated vertically. Set Orientation setting to 90 or 270 degrees.
Square Videos - Camera should be horizontal. Set Orientation setting to 0 degrees. App will center crop the recorded video.
The video overlays you select should be in the same orientation as your Orientation setting. The recommended size can be found in the + Add Overlays area.
