Turn your landscape YouTube videos into TikTok videos in minutes!
It’s 2021 and TikTok, the new kid on the block with all the cool new toys, came to take the throne as the number one social media app. The filmmaker purist in me said “NO-to the-NAH! That’s for kids and you’ll never see me on there.” Why? Because I’m an adult, with bills to pay and a whole season of the Mandalorian to catch up on.
Let’s be honest, EVERYONE wants a piece of the TikTok pie. Their ability to dominate social media with Vertical video is nothing short of genius (aka everyone was home practising their Savage Love moves). The purist filmmaker snob in me had to admit that times are changing and for content creators, it’s either eat or be eaten.
Brands on TikTok have an average engagement rate of 8%. The average engagement rate for brands on Facebook is 0.09% and 1.6% on Instagram. As long as TikTok keeps innovating and pushing ways to keep people scrolling, it will be hard to beat.
Repurpose your content
As always, content is king on TikTok. One way to boost your TikTok content is to repurpose what you already have stored away on YouTube. There may be some audacious, hilarious or epic content you created that’s tucked away in a forgotten playlist, that may work really well for a TikTok trend or challenge. It’s just itching to be reformatted. Thankfully with Kamua, it’s now easier and faster than ever to convert Landscape videos to the Vertical 9-16 aspect ratio.
- Copy and paste your Youtube video link/s into Kamua
- Add the Shots you want from your ShotList to the Timeline
- From the left Navigation bar go to Settings, select Portrait (9:16), switch on AutoCrop & Remove Black Bars (if you have any).
- You can watch it back by selecting Preview from the left Navigation bar or bottom left of your Clips.
- When you’re happy with it press the green Render button(bottom right)
- From your Outputs page, you can watch back and download your video.
