Frequently asked questions

How can I convert a YouTube video to Instagram Reels?

The key difference between YouTube and Instagram Reels is that YouTube video is primarily landscape (16:9), whereas Instagram Reels video is portrait (9:16). So, to convert a video from YouTube to work well on Reels you need to trim the video to change the aspect ratio.

Note that the Reels video format (9:16), is different to the Instagram feed format, which is square (1:1). Don’t worry, with our system you can create both!

Many video converters or trimmers will simply isolate the center of the landscape video, which results in the subject being out of frame or action being missed. To convert from YouTube to Reels successfully, your conversion tool needs to reframe videos appropriately and follow the action. Our AI system does this all for you, and allows you to manually tweak the result to create the best Reels possible!

To convert from YouTube to Reels, you have two options:

  • Connect Imaginario AI directly to your YouTube account
  • Import your video with a YouTube link

Once your video is imported from YouTube, choose Magic Clips for our AI to automatically select your highlights and reframe your video. Or, open up Clip Studio to manually choose your highlights and fine-tune framing.
