Tonight’s Second Video Worth Sharing: Screen Captures Not Full Size? Add Some Borders!

Tonight we have a short tutorial on Openshot and The Gimp. Sometimes your screen capture program will not output the size you would like. Many times it will use the resolution of your monitor and not the exact size that is ideal.

The GPU generally uses the res provided to the monitor and therefore you may end up with some strange sizes as I do with 1152 x 720 being the output.

Of course when editing the video everything ends up restricted by this size limitation and you end up with some black bars on either side of the video.

This video describes how to get rid of those black bars with a simple background image with the actual video size made transparent inside the background image.
