How to create a square video? Although I am choosing a square aspect ratio, the program adds black margins and the resulting video is not square. I can not find a way to customize the output video dimensions. Please help!

This is important because most of my viewers watch the video on mobile Facebook, in portrait orientation and the black margins make the video tiny.

While it is necessary for the show itself to use a square aspect ratio, the resulting video rendered by Photopia must also be square. Currently, you can find that option under "Publish" > "Video File" > "Instagram" using the "Square" preset. Click the "Publish" button in that window and your show will be rendered to a square video (1080 x 1080) then saved to the local hard drive of your choice.

Thanks, it is acceptable, but 1080 x 1080 is a bit low for nowadays. I would rather do  1600x1600.

Thank you for the feedback. We'll keep this in mind for future improvements to the video output system.
