I wonder about the following problem:
- The usual orientation of a smartphone is portrait.
- The usual orientation of a movie/video is landscape.
- When I have a lot of portrait pictures I can easily watch them on my smartphone holding it upright:
- When I make a stop motion video out of these pictures, the video is usually forced to be landscape, e.g. 4:3 or 16:9. Watching this video on an upright held smartphone results in:
- Even when I rotate my smartphone I still get something like this:

- I'd like to see my stop motion video like this:
My question is:
How do I produce portrait orientation videos (in format 3:4 or 9:16) that are naturally displayed on upright held smartphones?
I am looking for specific advices concerning specific video-producing software, preferably Windows MovieMaker and MAGIX Video.
