In this video, I’ll demonstrate how you can make portrait or standard video (most commonly taken from cell phones), look more appealing in Sony Vegas. You will notice this effect commonly used in news and daytime talk shows. Not only will it work for cell phone video but it can also be used for any standard video that you need to incorporate into your widescreen project. Get rid of those big anaconda side bars!

As an alternative, you could also crop the video. But, it may not always be ideal. Especially, if the video is so small like the video clip used in this tutorial.
