How do I get Instagram on Premiere Pro?

When publishing to Instagram, you have few options to share your posts like main feed, Stories, or Instagram TV. Each platform has different features that may confuse users. One of the reasons for this confusion is the number of possible aspect ratios you can use when exporting for Instagram. These include  4:5 and 9:16 for vertical video, landscape 16:9 for horizontal video, and 1:1 for square. You have to know each platform's video length requirements and aspect ratio.

Instagram Feed

  • 1-60 seconds in length
  • 16:9 (horizontal)
  • 1:1 (square)
  • 4:5 (vertical)

Instagram Stories

  • 1-60 seconds in length
  • 16:9 (horizontal)
  • 1:1 (square)
  • 4:5 (vertical)
  • 9:16 (vertical)

Instagram TV (IGTV)

  • 15 seconds-10 minutes in length (up to 60 minutes for larger accounts)
  • 4:5 (vertical)
  • 9:16 (vertical)

Can you upload 4k to Instagram?

The answer is yes; you can upload 4K videos to Instagram. This tutorial will show you how to make 4K export settings for Premiere Pro.

Go to basic video settings if everything is right. To have a 4K video feature, you should adjust the width to 3840, and the heights should be 2160. You can choose the frame rate as you wish next. "Field order" should be set to "Progressive," and the "Aspect" should be adjusted to "Square Pixels 1.0," make sure that you click the "Render at maximum depth" option below.

The next step is arranging Encoding Settings. Open the Encoding panel and click on the Performance button. If your computer specifications are suitable for 'hardware encoding,' it will be a better choice for you to increase the speed of your export. If it's not, you can prefer 'software encoding' instead of the Performance option. Afterward, choose the "High"  for the Profile choice. And set the Level to 5.2.
I want to talk a little bit about Bitrate. You will see the Target Bitrate and Maximum Bitrate settings in the Bitrate settings section under the video panel. This setting refers to the amount of information contained in one second of the video. A large amount of this information affects your video by increasing its quality, which means you will get better quality and more precise results in videos containing moving scenes. While the Target Bitrate provides an average quality for the video, a higher image is obtained with the maximum Bitrate. However, by increasing these settings, the file size also increases.

Scroll down to adjust "Bitrate settings ."This setting will help to increase the quality of your videos. You can choose the "CBR" for Bitrate Encoding. It provides a constant bitrate. You can change the "Target Bitrate"  to 90. It doesn't need to be exactly 90, you can decide the best for you, but I can advise you to use it on 90. Don't forget the check "Use Maximum Render Quality."

Next, go over to the Audio and set the "Audio" and "Audio Codec" to AAC.

"Simple Rate" should be arranged to 48 000 Hz, and "Channels" should be set to Stereo.

"Audio Quality" is set to high, and "Bitrate" is set to 320. As a final, "Precedence" is set to Bitrate.

Do not forget to go upward and click on Save Preset, which is next to the Preset option; then, you'll be able to have these settings every time.
