Hi Product Hunters, We’re thrilled to launch crop.video, the online tool that allows you to reframe landscape videos into vertical and square videos. Smart, fast and simple. Nowadays more and more videos are viewed on mobile screens, still most videos are shot and edited in landscape format. Leaving you staring at a tiny stamp on your shiny smartphone. Reframing videos is a time-consuming business and as a professional video-editor, I wondered if technology couldn’t give us a hand. So we’ve created www.crop.video Crop.video uses smart technology based on Open Computer Vision. A video is automatically split into shots after uploading and makes suggestions for cropping based on face and object recognition. You can easily trim videos and add a logo and subtitles as well. It's designed to help anyone, including people without video-editing experience. We’re extremely eager for your feedback, so check it out and let us know what you think! Upload your video now and crop it like it’s hot.

@bonsjoerd Great to see this here - are you planning to bring this out as a mobile app too? And what about slicing the videos so that they can be purposed such as slicing content for Instagram or Snapchat stories? Added you to my curations!

@krishnade Thanks for your reply Krishna. Their is trim tool included in crop.video it allows you to slice fragments from your video, so you can grab 10 seconds for Snapchat i.g. You should try it, it works pretty awesome, because you can instantly set a new mark in and out. We've first focused on a desktop tool, but certainly working an a app as well. Hope you enjoy using crop.video

@bonsjoerd Thanks - I will test it - what I was meaning is an auto slice every 10 seconds so that segments can be taken together to create a full story repurposed from a longer landscape or square video - thanks

Will this work for IG stories as well?

@tony_defranco Yes, the majority of our users reframe their videos for IG stories or FB. For now you can download your HD video to your desktop, but we're exploring the opportunities for a direct link to the social media feeds. That would be a big plus don't you think?

Hey guys, great work, just tried it out and it works great. Really considering to use (and pay) the unlimited version. Few questions though: 1. what's your standard vertical aspect ratio? does it fit FB/Snapchat/instagram etc.. in the same way? 2. will there (or is there) an option to put import a bulk of videos and then fine tune them if needed? happy to connect

@yoavush Hi Yoav, thanks for your kind reply. The standard aspect ratio is 9:16 or 1:1. It is the same way FB, Snapchat and IG works, so it fits flawless. Good questions about the bulk import. You would like i.g to import 20 videos at the same time, but create various projects. We'll take a look at that! Thanks.
yoav hornung@yoavush · Co-founder & CEO, Veed.me. + Coverr.co
@bonsjoerd Not sure how you define a project but yeah - I'd like to import 20 videos, fine tune the vertical area in each and then download all videos. Happy to connect over email.
