In this OpenShot tutorial, I will guide you through the process of editing a sequence of vertical video clips. Whether you're a beginner or have some editing experience, this tutorial will help you get started.

Step 1: Adjusting OpenShot Settings

1.1 Default Settings: When you open OpenShot, it defaults to a 16:9 wide-angle aspect ratio. We'll make some adjustments.

1.2 Changing Default Profile: Select 'Edit' > 'Preferences' and change the default profile to 'HD Vertical 1080p 30 frames per second' to match vertical video.

1.3 Increasing Cache: Increase the cache size to at least 10,000 megabytes (MB) to improve performance.

Step 2: Importing Video Clips

2.1 Drag and Drop: Open your file browser, select the vertical video clips you want, and drag them into OpenShot's panel.

2.2 Panel Adjustment: Adjust panel sizes to your preference.

Step 3: Overcoming OpenShot's Lag Issue

3.1 The Lag Problem: OpenShot can be laggy, especially with larger videos. To mitigate this, follow these steps.

3.2 Force Cache Adjustment: To change the cache size, go to 'Edit' > 'Preferences,' insert cache, and increase or decrease it by one (e.g., 19,999 MB).

3.3 Playback: Double-click the fast-forward button to play and wait for the blue line to fill completely.

Step 4: Cutting and Editing Video Clips

4.1 Markers: Place markers at the points where you want to cut your video.

4.2 Slicing: Right-click on a marker, choose 'Slice All,' and select which side to keep (left or right).

4.3 Repeat: Continue this process for each section you want to cut.

Step 5: Arranging and Final Playback

5.1 Arrange Clips: Drag the edited video clips together to ensure they snap into place.

5.2 Playback: Play the edited video; it should be smoother now that the cache has processed.

Step 6: Exporting Your Edited Video

6.1 Exporting: Click the 'Export Video' button.

6.2 File Naming: Give your video a title.

6.3 Choose Destination: Select where you want to save your video.

6.4 Export: Click 'Export Video' to begin rendering your edited vertical video.
