Want to take your recording from looking like this to this? Let me show you how to add a branded frame to your recorded content, the hard way, and then the easy way. Hi there. It's James here from Riverside, the platform that allows you to record in studio quality remotely. Subscribe to this channel for three videos a week on how to take your show to the next level. Let's get into this video. We've made a full video showing you how to make the frame that fits two people in a recording here, along with the free template so you can make one for yourself. I'll leave links to both of those in the description. You'll need to create your frame in the same resolution as your total file. So for me, it would be 1920 by 1080. Then ensure there are transparent gaps where the videos are going to be able to come through the frame. Then make sure you export it as a PNG.

The traditional and long-winded way to add a frame to your recording is to overlay it in your editing software and then reframe your footage. Here's how you do it. First, you'll need to download your files from Riverside.fm. With your downloaded files, organize them so they are easy to find later. At this point, you'll be able to import your files into your video editor of choice. From here, I can create my timeline, selecting the files and creating a new project. Now the files are in my timeline. It is time to add the frame I created earlier. I'll find the frame in my finder, drag it on top of my timeline and then extend it for the duration of the show. Now, in order to get everything to fit inside of the frame, I'll need to reposition and resize both mine and Danny's footage. Keep tweaking this until you are happy with how it looks. And this is the fine final step so edit and export your show.

Now with the Riverside.fm Magic Editor, I can do the same thing in literally two minutes with some handy, additional features like background noise removal, and gain normalization. Head to your Riverside.fm recordings and click the Magic Editor button. Select your for audio and video, choose fit to screen if your frame accommodates that. Mine doesn't. Then we can add our frame, simply select it from your files, and then we'll add it to your recording. Name your file. Choose your export resolution and finish. Riverside will then handle the export and my file be ready for me shortly. How quick was that? It's awesome knowing I no longer have to go down the difficult and lengthy route in my video editor.

So with no need to download or organize my files, nor do I need to reframe in my editor, I now have a perfectly formatted 4K recording that I can upload directly to YouTube or wherever I want to post my show. How cool is that? Why not give the Magic Editor a go now? Let us know what you think in the comment section of this video.
