Do you mean:

Is Movie Studio suitable for producing video works for commercial retail on sites such as Fiverr and Upwork?

IMHO: any video editor, which enables you to produce a product of a high quality, in a suitable format, is but one of many components required for success including, subject matter, artistic creativity and style, recording equipment quality ie Semi Pro or Pro video camera, processing skills etc.

Added: from your other post I see you have Vegas Pro 17, this would be better than Movie Studio which is a Prosumer product.

Using Cell Phone video, or some DSLR cameras video, will not cut it for commercial use.

I use the settings recommended here. On the preview, Movie Studio shows (picture) but produces a normal 16:9 horizontal video. I need vertical video 9:16. What am I doing wrong?

No. Notice the black black shape on the top and bottom of your video? That is the 9:16 video shape. What you need to do now is use the Section effect to select the area of the video you want to show. The Section, as you will see, is also shaped in 9:16, but you will lose a lot of video on each side because you are effectively cropping a 16:9 down to a 9:16.

Section in Edit:

In Preview:

You can't select an area outside the video but you can reduce the size of the crop box to zoom in. You can use Camera Zoomshot to move the crop box around as the video runs.

The above can also be achieved using Size position Rotation by imagining you are looking through the 9:16 "hole" but it is less intuitive.

All my forum comments are based on or refer to my System 1.

My struggle is over! I built my (now) system 2 in 2011 when DV was king and MPEG 2 was just coming onto the scene and I needed a more powerful system to cope. Since then we've advanced to MP4 and to bigger and bigger resolutions. I was really suffering, not so much in editing (with proxies) but in encoding, which just took ages. A video, with Neat Video noise reduction applied, would encode at 12% of film speed. My new system 1 does the same job at 160% of film speed. Marvellous. I'm keeping my old system as a capture station for analogue video tapes and DV.

You have a 9:16 project but you filmed 16:9 - that is what you did wrong.
