Removing the black areas in gallery view


Whenever I host a meeting where there are 3 speakers in gallery view, there are unsightly black bars/ areas that appear. How do I get rid of that and put in my own background for branding purposes? I hope to be able to put in a background like the attached example. Or is that something that can only be done post-production in video editing software please? Thank you!

Hi @Alice938 

Unfortunately, this is not something directly supported in Zoom yet, at least not for normal meetings. Something along these lines is available for Webinars, known as Webinar Session Branding

The example provided would be created using video production software like OBS to create that custom video layout. 


Hope that helps and please make sure to mark the solution as accepted if this information is what you needed.
