There are many ways to make a longer video for your Instagram story, and you can use the built-in trimming tool, or an online video trimmer, to keep the duration under one minute. You can also create a carousel post by selecting the carousel icon, which looks like squares stacked on top of one another, in the bottom right corner of the screen. Then, you can choose which clips to include and then tap the start/stop button.
In order to maximize your content, you should upload a video that is no more than 280 seconds long. While this length is the minimum allowed for your Instagram story, you can add additional footage, loops, or create intros and end screens. If your video is longer than 60 seconds, it is best to add captions to help viewers navigate through the video without sound. This will make the video easier to follow, regardless of its length.
To make the most of your Instagram video, be sure to use clear, bright lighting and good audio. Whether you are recording a tutorial or a story, it should be informative, visually appealing, and to the point. Make sure to add a call to action in the middle of the video. If you are using a mobile device, you can add sound to it with an app like Mauvio.
