In this article we check out top Final Cut Pro templates for IGTV, to help you get the most from this powerful part of Instragram.
Video Templates for IGTV
In recent years Instagram has opened up to allow users to work with more than its original vertical video and 1980x1080 resolution and eased restrictions on video duration.
IG Stories was a response to Snapchat: they are quick updates that
disappear after 24 hours, and are packed with visual effects and in-app stickers to
help you add a personal touch.
Just like how Stories are a response to Snapchat, IGTV is a response to YouTube. IGTV is a mobile-first platform that handles vertical and landscape video, longer-form video content-up to 60 minutes for verified accounts (15 minutes for those of us with a standard account). Instagram has it set up so that IGTV can work independently or in tandem with your existing account. Unlike posting a quick story to update your followers, the longer form gives you the opportunity to share a more in-depth or personal video to your account.
