Video Quality and Resolution

Here’s a rundown of the different kinds of resolutions you can use to download/export your video, and how to choose the one that’s right for your project.


Videos at 360p are well-suited to smartphones and other mobile devices since they use up less data, but may appear a bit blurry on larger screens. If you’re creating slideshows in Animoto Memories, you’ll find 360p is the default resolution, and you may want to upgrade your resolution to share elsewhere.


True high-definition starts at 720p, and this is the image resolution at which many HD television channels broadcast. An HD 720p Animoto video is crisp, sharp, and looks great on most displays.


For an even higher resolution, you can download your videos at 1080p, another favorite for HD television stations. We recommend this resolution for sharing on social media or for showing videos on larger screens and TVs, since it’ll give your audience the highest possible quality display, with crystal clear playback.
