C19 - Social Media Videos

Social Media preview

The social media videos come in four options:

  • 16x9 with WELS logo
  • 16x9 without WELS logo
  • 1x1 with WELS logo
  • 1x1 without WELS logo

16x9 and 1x1 are aspect ratios of the size of the boxes. 16x9 is the "normal" rectangular shape and 1x1 is a box and designed for social media (specifically for Facebook and Instagram). It is not necessary to use the 1x1 videos, but the option is available.
