Square or Portrait?


#248

Square. Gives it that nostalgia and also uniqueness within the “posting” world.

Thank you Dom! For making my dreams come true with v2.

It should be portrait because it’s a way to show that this is different. Plus, it keeps people from reposting old vines to get followers

100% square


#252

square because all my vines that i’ve made previously and i’m planning to use on the app are all square :joy::joy:

Square. Retro look, new vibes. :slight_smile:


#254

Portrait. Square means more editing!


#255

I like portrait; as a creator, it helps get more in the shot and also works better with border titles. Buut, I can see why people would want square also.


#256

it’s easier to set up 2 people in frame when videos are square vs portrait. plus portrait videos never show fully on my phone lol, something always goes wrong lol.


#257

I’m really mad with all those morons taking pictures in portrait all over the day…


#258

Changed my mind, square is perfect.


#259

Both would be good. But since it’s a new app maybe the default should be portrait and have the square as a classic option, if that makes sense.

Remember what happened last time a little blue birdy came to talk…a great thing was taken away. Yeah no birds over here :joy::joy::joy::joy:

I’m a little confused why square is so popular? Doesn’t that just mean more editing if you plan on not using the possible in-app camera and would rather edit and upload externally? Wouldn’t portrait fit a phone screen size and square not?
(Just wondering).

vertical video is always terrible for the desktop. square videos don’t care about the orientation of your device; they’re as big as they can get in either portrait or landscape.

Square. If later uploaded to other social media it will be so much less of a pain. Instagram does square, YouTube is better with squares too, unless it’s landscape. Idk about twitter but yeah. Square seems best.
