GoPro Quik: How To Use Fit/Fill Option

by GoPro on ‎09-17-2021 04:03 PM
What are you trying to do?
Figure out how to understand and master the Fit/Fill options in GoPro Quik.

Where does it apply?
GoPro Quik
  • iOS
  • Android

How to do it?
By default, all video styles will Fill your videos which means that they will completely fill the screen. If you want some of your photos/videos to Fit the screen, then you have to select an individual clip, choose the [Frame] option and select [Fit].

The [Fit] option will show you both the global project format as well as the individual file's aspect ratio.
The bold white square is how your media is currently displayed inside the project format. The gray outline shows you the global project format if they aren't already the same aspect ratio. 

Confused? Check out some examples below!

EXAMPLE 1:

Global project format 16:9 with a 16:9 media > media is already Fit.

Of course, you can choose any aspect ratio you want for your individual media which then adjusts its cropping. Be creative!
