Finally Instagram published the update we all have been waiting for. No more second thoughts, starting over or anxiety of whether there will be enough seconds left to complete the video. Now we are able to film the Instavideo with a proper camera and after that we can upload it to Instagram.
There is still the 15 second limit to the Instavideo. That is a short time and therefore I will give you some tips for creating an Instavideo.
Script for Instavideo
First of all you need a script. Try to build the story without text since you need to use the 15 seconds efficiently.
Even though you are able to edit your clips, remember to keep them short and to focus the most important happening in the middle of the image. However, the new update includes a slider so that you can center the image in Instagram before posting. This is still easier if you think about it from the beginning.
Now it is time to kill your darlings. No matter how well you plan the script, there will probably be too many scenes. It is important to choose the most informative sequences when you make a tutorial. To be on the safe side, make sure your video is somewhere between 14 and 15 seconds.
Convert video to iPhone format
Before you import the video to your smartphone, you need to convert it. This video was converted with Sorenson Squeeze , in this case with the template for iPhone and iPad.
Import the Video to Smartphone and Upload Video to Instagram
