Transform your videos into shareable Instagram content

from the official website.

Creating an Instagram video involves editing your footage to fit the social media platform's specifications. When creating videos for Instagram, it is essential to consider its unique format and aspect ratio. By editing your video to fit the Instagram aspect ratio, you prevent black bars from appearing on the sides or top and bottom of the screen when posting your content.

Instagram videos possess unique format and aspect ratio requirements for both regular posts and IGTV content.

Creating Regular Instagram Video Posts:
Begin by adding your video into the Timeline. Modify the length by dragging the borders of the video clip. Alter all clips accordingly if needed, ensuring your video falls between 3 and 60 seconds. Click on the Aspect Ratio button within the player panel and choose a preset aspect ratio or create a custom one (x:y) that fits within the minimum (1.91:1) to maximum (4:5) acceptable limits.

You can eliminate black bars from your video using a Vertical Fill filter. Navigate to the Filters tab in the left sidebar. Click the Vertical fill filter from the Featured section. Drag and drop the filter onto your clip within the Timeline to blur the edges.

Export the edited video by clicking on the Export button beneath the player. Select MP4 format. Name your video and choose a saving location. Choose the desired quality level. Click Start to initiate the export process.

Creating Videos for Instagram Stories:
Start by adding a video into the Timeline. Customize the length to ensure it remains under 15 seconds in duration. Adjust the aspect ratio, choosing from presets or customizing (x:y), with a mandatory portrait orientation and an aspect ratio of 9:16. Export the video by clicking on the Export button below the player, select MP4 format, provide a name for your video and specify the desired saving location, choose the preferred quality level. Click Start to begin the export process.

To ensure optimal Instagram video quality, adhere to the following technical specifications:

  1. Frames Per Second (FPS): Maintain a minimum of 30 frames per second.

  2. Resolution: Minimum resolution should be set at 720 pixels.

  3. File Size Limit: The maximum file size is 4 GB.

Creating Videos for IGTV:
Begin by adding your video into the Timeline. Adjust the clip's length, keeping in mind that unverified accounts can publish videos lasting from 15 seconds to 10 minutes, while verified accounts can share up to 60 minutes of content. Choose a suitable aspect ratio. Vertical videos must have an aspect ratio of 9:16. Horizontal videos must have a 16:9 aspect ratio. Export the video by clicking on the Export button beneath the player. Select MP4 format. Choose the desired quality level. Name your video and save it to a chosen folder. Click Start to initiate the export process.
