What is the ‘Effect Drop Zone’ in Nero movie themes?

Nero Video includes a whole range of new MovieThemes, where intro/outro as well as the main part of the movie have seen quite some upgrades in design.

A unique feature within the intro and outro sequence of the new MovieTheme templates is a so called ‘effect drop zone’.

Drop Zone 1

In Intro and Outro, you now can better personalize your movie by simply dragging photos or videos into the preview window or timeline.

The dropped asset will automatically be integrated into the animation pattern of the template giving your video a real wow effect.

I have shot video with my smartphone vertically – how to edit and output this vertically, too?

Today, most videos and photos are captured via smartphones in portrait orientation, and are also shared and watched vertically. Following this trend, major social media platforms like YouTube and Facebook have introduced vertical video as a newly supported standard format.

Nero Video has comfortable functions to utilize this format out of the box, now.

Via the vertical video editing mode, Nero Video allows you to import, edit, and export portrait videos and photos in native vertical video format.

You can access the vertical video editing mode via Nero Video home screen either by dropping your files into the drop zone (dragging a 16:9 vertical video will automatically open a vertical editing project), or by clicking on the button ‘Edit Vertical Video’.
