How to export your video for Instagram using Adobe Premiere Pro

]Everyone these days are publishing their videos on Instagram. Instagram now allows you to post 60 seconds worth of video. A lot of people struggle with the best exporting settings for their videos. Here are the best settings to export your video for Instagram

There are 3 different layouts for Instagram. Choose which one is the best for your video.
Sizes:
1800 x 945- Instagram Horizontal
864 x 1080- Instagram Vertical
1080 x 1080 - Instagram Square

To set up your different sequence settings do the following:
1) New Sequence

2) Start with the Digital SLR -> 1080p -> DSLR 1080p30


3) Then go to the "Settings" tab and change the frame size and name it. Repeat this process to add the other Sequence settings

1800 x 945- Instagram Horizontal


864 x 1080 - Instagram Vertical

1080 x 1080 - Instagram Square


4) When you select which Sequence you want and you drag your video clip to that sequence it will say "this clip does not match the sequence's settings. Change sequence to match the clip's settings?"
choose "Keep existing settings"

5) You have a couple of options. You can scale down you video to fit the entire video in the sequence or you can move the position of the video to where you would like so that it fills the entire video.


Export Settings:
1) Under the Video tab change the Bitrate Encoding to VBR,2Pass

2) Depending on the length of the video that you have you can change the target Bitrate and the Maximum Bitrate to make the file smaller to send to your phone. If it is a large file, I would suggest 6 as the Target Bitrate and 10 as the Maximum Bitrate.
Sending the video to your phone
Iphone:
1) On your computer open up the Messanger App and put in your number and drag the clip to your message and send

2) Save it, upload it to Instagram!

Android phones:
1) If your computer has bluetooth, use that to select your video clip to send to your phone.
