    If I have an event in iMovie and majority of my footage is in widescreen; is there a way to place something behind the portrait video so I don't have huge black bars on either side during those segments? I'd even be fine with having multiple of the same footage going simultaneously side by side I just don't want the letterboxing. :apple:

    You could try dropping the portrait video on top of another clip/still photo/background and using the Picture in Picture option.

    This leaves me with a problem of letterboxing still, I don't know how to get those black bars and I guess even if I could have three of the same video going side-by-side that still wouldn't work because of the letterboxing. :mad:

    HAHAHAHA. That has got to be one of the most hilariously relatable videos ever. In any event, I've decided to just rotate the video and make them sideways. It's just a "clubbing" video so that will have to do. :eek:
