Gone are the days when you used Facebook to share your personal experiences, post about events or tag friends. Gone are the days when Facebook led the social media world.
Now, here are the days for Instagram to be a leader and dominator where it has become the go-to platform for sharing photos, videos and building an attractive social media presence.
Be it celebrities, companies and influencers, everyone is on Instagram to attract users and build a fan base via the use of the internet. Audio-visual content is the best way to impact and leave a mark in the minds of viewers.
However, even though Instagram is an attractive and user-friendly platform, it has certain restrictions, specifically in the video posting dept. For any user, uploading 4K videos becomes complicated with the restriction of up to 1080p quality video uploads on Instagram.
Now considering how most brands, marketers and influencers use GoPro or 4K capable phones while spending ample time to shoot quality videos, having Instagram compromise on the same video quality for viewers or lag during upload is a painful sight to watch.
To understand why 4K videos are a cause of unnecessary trouble while being connected to Instagram, which is the trendiest of the lot right now, we must first go through the video upload requirements of Instagram:
- Video must be in a compatible format – MP4.
- The video length is to a minimum of one minute and a maximum of 15/60 mins depending on a mobile/web upload.
- There is minimum frame rate requirement as well on Instagram of 30FPS which has to be met.
- Depending on the length of the video, there are size constraints and Instagram might compress your video if required.
- An individual’s time constraint in running and uploading the video on the platform, especially if there is any incompatibility or other prior commitments.
Now, considering that your 4K video may or may not meet these stringent standards set by Instagram, especially the size and format limits, you need an editor you help you out. As an artist, blogger or influencer, you’ve spent ample time in documenting your experiences and messages for the people to see and with tools like VideoProc you can save yourself from compromising on more time in editing. Remember, you enjoy shooting videos and sharing it with the world, editing is an additional tag along that comes with the job.
However, using a 4K video editing software can be a quick and easy solution to edit the minutes that reflect your hardwork.
As a third-party editor platform, you can easily meet the demands of Instagram to upload your 4K videos in terms of a GoPro video that can be trimmed, cut, crop, rotate or formatted. Many a times, you might have shot a lengthy video which has to be rearranged in order and cut into multiple clips to be posted on Instagram.
