rendering video in Movie Studio 13 Platinum

Confused. Trying to render video for Instagram (Insta says they accept . I was told to go to properties and create 1080wide x 1350tall. But when I Render to MP4, it says it will make video 1920 x 1080?? Maybe properties is the setting on how the pgm visually looks as I am creating but not how to be rendered? I also get confused as Instagram says they want 16:9 1:1 or 4:5. There seems no way to choose this while rendering. I also don't understand aspect ratio and the 16:9 for example. Is 16:9 equal to some numerical ratio like 1050 x 1350?? As you can tell I am quite ignorant and confused. Strange that Vegas or Movie studio doesn't allow me to make pre set selections. Thanks!!

Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 13 has Basic and Advanced render menus. You can only customize render templates in Advanced menu.

16:9 = 1920x1080.

9:16 = 1080x1920.

Here's a review for you.

@paul-adams 1080x1350 is 4:5 so fits the Instagam requirements.

Are you making your project properties size 1080x1350?

Hi. Sorry I didn't see your response. When I go to PROPERTIES and make 1080 x 1350, i then go to MAKE MOVIE and choose MP4 (Instagram insists on that format). However, it says it's gonna render at 1920 x 1080?? I then go to ADVANCED OPTIONS in MAKE MOVIE and then CUSTOMIZE TEMPLATE and I changed to your size. It worked. Only took me a month on and off. I'm slow, but eventually get there. Thanks
