  1. I am using Movie Studio 13 Platinum. I want to upload some of my video's to Instagram. Am I correct that it must be MP4 format (I've tried MOV and WMV but didn't work)? If I upgrade To vegas (I am not a pro video person w limited knowledge) perhaps there is even a "Save video for Instagram" choice when rendering? Any help appreciated. A bit lost. (BTW, the music video's were made well by a pro in support of my albums. I no longer have access to him). MANY THANKS paul
  2. PS I am using laptop PC w i7 chip and 8 gigs Ram and windows 10

@paul-adams Hi, i don't have Movie Studio 13 but if there's the option AVC/AAC mp4, yes that should upload no problem to any site like Instagram, check the width/height & aspect ratio ( 16:9 landscape or 9:16 portrait )of the project & render settings,

PS, mp4 is a container, it can hold a few different types of formats,,, mp4 AVC H.264 has been around for a long time & is pretty much universally accepted, mp4 HEVC H.265 is a more modern version of the previous, it was developed to help compress more data into a small space because of 4k & 8k video which produces more data & so fills up hardrive space, like on the phones this storage hardrive space is limited, but some programs can have problems with this new HEVC format, i don't know if you'll have that render option on MS13, but you might have HEVC on footage you're using,

Just go for MP4. Forgot in Movie Studio 13, whether it is Magix Mainconcept AVC/AAC, or Sony AVC/AAC.

The resolution, depends on how you want it to be shown, whether 16:9, or 9:16, or 1:1. The instagram has been made simpler now.

I choose 1920x1080 for 16:9, 1080x1920 for 9:16, and 1080x1080 for 1:1. Aspect Ratio in between them is also possible, whether 3:2 (2:3) or 5:4 (4:5).
