Create Video automatically makes it vertical 0 Recommended Answers 47 Replies 197 Upvotes

I am trying to create a movie with both android and ios (latest versions of google photos in both). While I am selecting only horizontal videos, the editor automatically turns the video into vertical mode and adds black bars on top and bottom of the horizontal video.
Why is this happening just now? It was working fine last week, no updates in between. There could be an option to choose orientation of the edited video, right?
Thanks!!

Making vertical videos should be considered as a crime. Human eyes are positioned horizontally.

Hi everyone,
 
Thank you for reporting this issue, I can recreate the issue so it's definitely a wide issue.

 I've escalated it to Google so they should be taking notice of it, if they wasn't already aware.

Thanks for your patience.

Sorry to report bad news, but it is another change that they have made deliberately without telling anyone, you can read about from the product manager here:-  

Response on twitter by the Google Photos product manger

I still think it is poor show to change things without telling the users or giving us a choice. I don't want to watch a postage stamp video on my TV.

Bonjour à tous,
Même mécontentement de ma part.
Google, s'il vous plait arrêtez les vidéos verticales qui ajoutent des bandes noires là où il n'y en a pas besoin. TV, PC :  écran horizontaux. Smartphone : rotation à 90 ° et nous sommes en horizontal.
Merci d'avance !

Hello,
Same dissatisfaction on my part.
Google, please stop vertical videos that add black bars where there is no need. 
TV, PC: horizontal screens. Smartphone: 90 ° rotation and we are horizontal.
Thank you in advance !
