As video content in the web is becoming ubiquitous, the use of handy tools for a quick editing of short clips is becoming a frequent need for many of us. If we look at the main fashion ecommerce sites, we'll find revealing examples of how customised video content has entered the mainstream.
Since professional videos are expensive to produce, a wise practice is recycling and repurposing, by adapting media content to different channels -social and ecommerce platforms- and situations.
For instance, we are going to take this vertical video, ready to post in Instagram Stories, and transform this video for being ready for other uses.
Usually, a key part of repurposing consists of tuning the aspect ratio of the video. A simple resize -combined with either cropping or padding- is usually enough to use the same content in our home page and in social networks. Resizing and cropping the video we can get a video version ready to be shared in Youtube or Twitter.
Or rather we may add a color background making some padding and add a message that relates to our campaign.
Fortunately, for most scenarios of video repurposing we don't need advanced skills or access to expensive software packages. A handful of video transformations -like resizing, padding, cropping or even adding text- are possible with high quality in a couple of clicks.
Here, we'll see how to resize a short video online using Abraia. It just require a moderm browser like Firefox, Chrome, or Safari, and it works even on your iPhone and Android device.
We upload our video to the resizer tool, which will show it as the padded square version for Instagram (without cut off our content).
We change the preset to Youtube or to any specific size of our choice, and we select between crop and pad mode.
We change the color background (color of the pads) and add some text message on our new video post.
Finally, we press the downlod button and wait while the video is created.
You can also automate these tasks taking advantage of the bulk tool, even adding a logo to a batch of videos at once.
Intagram crops all your vertical images and videos to a 4:5 aspect ratio. This means that when you post a 9:16 image or video is cut off. To preserve the content in a consistent way, one of the the best solutions is to pad all your images and videos.
The optimal size to use on Instagram is 1080 pixels wide and a square (1:1) or vertical (4:5) aspect ratio. So to get the best quality you must post your videos square with a resolution of 1080x1080 or vertical with a resolution of 1080x1350. Moreover, have into account that the video must have a maximum length of 60 seconds and a maximum frame rate of 30 FPS.
With Abraia you can easily resize your images and videos before publishing to Instagram with the best qualilty, and works online from your desktop or mobile phone.
Go to the editor and upload the vertical or portrait photo or video you want to post. When you are using the app in your selfphone, you can also record the video at the moment to upload the video, and use the app to trim and adjust the duration fo the video. The video will be peview with a square aspect ratio, using a white background by default.
The video is automatically padded to fit to Instagram without cropping. Change the resize mode to get the square cropped version of the video, or select the Instagram portrait preset to take up more vertical space, posting the 4:5 vertical version for Instagram.
You can also change the background color, if you want to use another color instead of the default white color. Or add your logo or some text to overlay your message on the video.
When the preview matches what you want your post to look like, click the download button on the desktop or the share button on the phone (at the top right hand corner). Wait for a while to create the video, it can take some seconds, and directly share your video on Instagram.
After resizing your post, you can download or post it on Instagram if you are using a mobile device. You cand directly share the image or video on Instagram from your mobile phone. Since your photo/video now has a 1:1 aspect ratio, you can publish it without cropping.
