Ideal size/resolution/format of images, audio and video clips

Below is a definitive list of accepted file formats you can upload to an Animoto project. You'll also find our recommended best practices to ensure uploaded images and video clips look crisp in your videos!

Images

Accepted Formats

We accept images formatted as JPG, GIF, PNG, or TIFF. Your images can be up to 30mb in size.

-------------------------------

Here are some best practices we recommend if you’re having trouble with images:

Aspect Ratio

If you’d like your images to fit perfectly, you can size them to the aspect ratio of your project. Square aspect ratio is 1:1 (1080x1080p) and landscape ratio is 16:9 (1920x1080p).

Getting The Best Quality

We recommend uploading images up to 2000 pixels on the longest edge at 72dpi, using the sRGB colorspace for best quality. For reference, Full HD video is 1920 pixels wide.

--------------------------------

Upload Troubleshooting

If you received an error when trying to upload images, we recommend reformatting with this free online converter before trying again.

Our max upload limit for images is 30mb.

Video Clips

Accepted Formats

You can upload video clips up to 400mb and we accept the following formats: MP4, AVI, MOV, QT, 3GP, M4V, MPG, MPEG, MP4V, H264, WMV, MPG4, MOVIE, M4U, FLV, DV, MKV, MJPEG, OGV, MTS, and MVI.

---------------------------------

Aspect Ratio

For your video to fit perfectly in our landscape ratio, we recommend uploading it in 16:9 ratio (1920x1080p).

---------------------------------

Upload Troubleshooting

If you received an error when trying to upload video clips, I’d recommend reformatting with this free online converter before trying again.

You can use several video formats and codecs with Animoto. However, there are many different video file types that use proprietary encoding formats, so you won't know if Animoto supports your particular clip or not until you try uploading. Video captured by some digital cameras and camcorders may require conversion prior to upload.

Our max upload limit for video clips is 400mb.

Songs

Accepted Formats

You can upload mp3, AAC, and m4a files. Your song file can be up to 20mb in size and up to 20 minutes in length.

---------------------------------

Upload Troubleshooting

If your file already fits within these guidelines, and you’re having some trouble uploading, you can reformat the file to resolve the problem fast. You can do that for free in just a few clicks by running the file through this converter first.

We’re unable to support streamed music so you might need to download an offline copy from your streaming service.

Note: If you're posting your videos on the internet, you will need to have permission from the copyright holder to use specific tracks. This is especially important if you're using your videos for business purposes.
