PETTY! JUST PLAIN PETTY 😂
As we all know, rumor has it that TikTok will be banned in the United States September 15th if an American company doesn’t buy it. Welp! Looks like Instagram decided to make their own version of TikTok within the app. And so far it looks like people are feeling it.
Check out how to to use Instagram Reels below 👇🏾
Select Reels at the bottom of the Instagram camera. You’ll see a variety of creative editing tools on the left side of your screen to help create your reel, including:
Audio: Search for a song from the Instagram music library. You can also use your own original audio by simply recording a reel with it. When you share a reel with original audio, your audio will be attributed to you, and if you have a public account, people can create reels with your audio by selecting “Use Audio” from your reel.
AR Effects: Select one of the many effects in our effect gallery, created both by Instagram and creators all over the world, to record multiple clips with different effects.
Timer and Countdown: Set the timer to record any of your clips hands-free. Once you press record, you’ll see a 3-2-1 countdown, before recording begins for the amount of time you selected.
Align: Line up objects from your previous clip before recording your next to help create seamless transitions for moments like outfit changes or adding new friends into your reel.
Speed: Choose to speed up or slow down part of the video or audio you selected. This can help you stay on a beat or make slow motion videos.
Reels can be recorded in a series of clips (one at a time), all at once, or using video uploads from your gallery. Record the first clip by pressing and holding the capture button. You’ll see a progress indicator at the top of the screen as you record. Stop recording to end each clip. - via Instagram
It’s literally TikTok within your Instagram Export Page and I’m not mad at it. We shall see if this becomes another Snapchat moment. However, my only request is proper filters and transitions ☝🏾
