I just finished a screen recording and noticed that the video is not full screen but with edges on the sides.
When i do try to fill the screen with high % in the screen size it's cutting the top or bottom of the screen recording...Any idea how i can recored & export the video so it will be full screen with no edges?
Why Apple created such an expensive computer with a moronic aspect ratio like this in today’s day and age makes no sense to me. They completely disregarded the video world in doing so.
The odd part is, they didn’t miss a 16: 9 aspect ratio by all that much. For starters here’s an image to scale of your MacBook Pro. Along with a 1920 by 1080 scaled image pasted in. I’ve included an image of an aspect ratio calculator so you can see for yourself, how I determined the aspect ratio of your monitor.
In today’s world of video tutorials, and video this and video that. I’m completely fascinated that Apple would even create a monitor that goes so far against the grain of common sense. We live in a 16:9 world. Be it standard HD, 2K, 4K and at sometime down the road 8-K. It’s all done in the 16 by 9 aspect ratio.
Now, when I stretch out my 1920 by 1080 image while constraining the aspect ratio.
You will see just how close Apple came to meeting a 16: 9 aspect ratio.
In the blue area of the image. 2880 X 1620 equates to a 16: 9 aspect ratio. But it’s a nonstandard video editing dimension for YouTube uploads and or video editing in general.
You could lower the resolution on your MacBook Pro. Then capture a 1920 by 1080 area of the screen. That works but you will always be working on a slightly blurry screen to your eyes. The recording itself will be crisp and sharp.
Or, you can capture 1920 by 1080 area of the screen which is
very small as depicted in my 1st image. It’s actually so impractical,
I’m only bringing it up because it’s an option. I would never do it myself on a
screen like yours.
At least not on a 15" screen. I have a 32" 2560 x 1440 monitor. I can record a 1920 x 1080 window that measures 24" diagonally. That's more than acceptable.
A 15" screen at 2880 x 1800 would have a diagonal screen size of less than 10 inches.
Your best option in my opinion. Get a separate 1920 by 1080 monitor and do your recordings on it.
