Facebook Reels Videos: Duration & More Information! In contrast to TikTok, YouTube Shorts, and Instagram Reels, which have all been around for a while, Facebook just opened up access to Reels to producers all around the United States. Reels are described by Facebook as “fun and short videos comprising of music, audio, AR effects, text overlays, and more,” and they may be made by users on mobile devices using the Facebook app.
Duration of Facebook Reels videos?
Facebook Reels Videos must be 30 seconds or fewer, uploaded via Facebook’s Reels feature, and adhere to Facebook’s Community Guidelines in order to be eligible for the Reels stream.
What In-App Editing Features Are Available for Reels?
Before posting, you can quickly and easily edit your Facebook Reel using the built-in editing tools. Currently, Facebook offers a number of in-app options for making reels, including:
- Use audio from other people’s Reels or add music from the Facebook music collection.
- Duration: Your Reel’s time length can be automatically set to 15 seconds, 30 seconds, or 60 seconds.
- Speed: You can alter the speed of your Facebook Reel by slowing it down by 0.3, 0.5, or 1, or accelerating it by 2 or 3 times the original speed.
- Effects: Select an effect from the Facebook Effects library. Some of these effects created by other Facebook users can also be used by you.
- Timer: To record your Reel without using your hands, use the countdown timer.
- Green screen: To add a background from your camera roll to your reel, use the green screen effect.
In addition to these features, it’s important to know that you can record many clips and combine them into a single Facebook Reel by choosing them from your gallery or recording them. You can record several recordings with various effects by using AR Effects developed by Facebook or independent developers.
Can Reels Be Profited From?
Facebook is introducing a new incentive scheme to assist creators to get paid when people visit their reels as part of their pledge to invest over $1 billion in them through 2023. The so-called “Reels Play bonus” will first be available only by invitation, starting in the US and perhaps eventually going global. Facebook plans to start testing full-screen and immersive ads between reels, much like Instagram Reels, to assist small companies and brands reach new audiences. Facebook Reels Videos may also eventually be integrated by Facebook into its Facebook Stars live-streaming digital-gifting monetization program.
Facebook Reels have a 9:16 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels. In other words, your reel must be vertical, so make sure your film has the appropriate proportions by clicking the backdrop and choosing the 9:16 aspect ratio.
Currently, you may add text using the toolbar choices and search for photos and GIFs directly from the editor. Through the Music option, you may also add any type of music or sound.
Publish a Facebook Reel
On your mobile device, you can start generating Reels by clicking “Create” in the News Feed’s dedicated Reels area or at the top of the Facebook Reels Videos app’s Feed. Then, you have the option to upload your previously edited films from your phone’s gallery or combine real-time and previously recorded clips.
