This short video demonstrates a few of the issues you may come across when working with smart (mobile) phone video where you need to maintain a vertical (portrait) orientation - eg for Instagram.

Thank you for the tutorial! However, I am not able to replicate that. I even contacted tech support and they were unable to replicate it either and have forwarded it to the developers. Clearly you are able to, but on export, mine reverts to 16:9. I have attached my process and the email from tech.
