Product Updates: Custom Aspect Ratios, Save Scenes to a new video, and more

Custom Aspect Ratios

Change the aspect ratio on your videos! Next time you’re in Vyond Studio, head to the Video Settings menu. You can change the aspect ratio from the usual Horizontal (16:9) to become Square (1:1), Vertical (9:16), or even a Custom size.



Video Settings

Not sure where the Video Settings are? Go into Vyond Studio and look above the stage. You’ll find a cog icon next to the ‘Preview’ button.

Place assets inside the camera frame

When you save the settings you’ll see the camera frame adjust to your selected aspect ratio, giving you the freedom to move the camera position across the stage and only show the assets in the frame. When it’s time to download, the generated video will match the aspect ratio selected in the Video Settings.

*Please note, this feature is available to Premium, Professional and Enterprise users.

From sushi to Mount Fuji and plenty in between, the Japan content pack has arrived! This year we’ve seen a great wave of requests for content relating to Japan.

Save Scenes as a New Video


Have you ever wanted to turn parts of your video into a GIF? Or only share certain sections of your video project? Now, you can make quick copies of your selected scenes with the following steps:

  • Holding down the Ctrl / Cmd key, select the scenes and any audio you want to save
  • Right-click to open the menu
  • Select “Save as New Video”
  • A success snackbar will give you the option to open a new tab to view your scenes

Your new video will be saved in the same location as your original file.

Search in Japanese

You can now search for items in the library with Japanese keywords! We are experimenting to cover the majority of props and actions, but of course, all the latest Japan-themed assets are already searchable in Japanese.

New Audio Tracks

The list of background music audio has been updated! We’ve retired 58 tracks and added 79 new ones.

Retired audio

Any background music that was licensed by PremiumBeat has been retired. These will no longer be listed in the audio library. You will notice in old videos where the track has been used, the track name in the timeline will have “(Retired)” next to it.
