Instagram ‘Stop-Motion’ Tool

Jul 16th '19

News on the grapevine is that Instagram is currently working on developing a ‘Stop-Motion’ camera option for Stories! We understand that this feature is a work in progress, and not available just yet.


What you can potentially look forward to with this new tool. The ‘Stop-Motion’ tool would essentially make creating video content easier than ever, as it would allow you to create intriguing videos without fancy equipment or extensive videography skills. Read on to learn more about this potential new Instagram feature.


  • What Is Stop-Motion?

If you’re not familiar with stop-motion, it’s a cinematographic technique where the camera is frequently stopped and started, which gives animated figures the impression of movement.


  • How Will It Work?

While this feature hasn’t been formally confirmed or announced by Instagram, we can give you an overview of how it will likely work. You’ll apply the ‘Stop-Motion’ setting on your Instagram Stories menu, and take images of your object while moving it in different positions to create the impression of movement. So far, we know that Instagram will allow up to ten frames, which is perfect for short-form Instagram Stories! We suggest using a tripod while recording your stop-motion video to ensure that your frame overlay stays consistent in each shot.


  • Takeaways

We’ll let you know as soon as this tool is officially released on Instagram, but in the meantime, it’s something you can look forward to! We’re unsure if this unreleased feature will be available to Instagram posts on the grid as well, so stay tuned for more information.


Stop-motion allows new opportunities to get creative and fresh with the content you create.
