Step 2 Change the aspect ratio

The aspect ratio is is the height/width correlation. The most common one is 16:9, which means that the visual has 16 pixels long by 9 pixels broad. As for Instagram, you need to change it as 4:5.

You have two ways to change a video’s aspect ratio, which are adding borders and cropping videos.

Click on the Settings icon and select the aspect ratio as 4:5. Move your video so that FlexClip doesn’t crop out important parts of your video. If your video is too small, click on the Color icon and pick any border color you like.
