Why is Instagram Video a Better Alternative to Vine?




Facebook recently introduced the short video service to Instagram. This was a great step ahead as Instagram previously only supported images. The prime competitor of Facebook’s Instagram would be Twitter’s Vine. Both have their own pros and cons but it seems like in the current scenario, going for Instagram Video would be a better option among the two.

Twitter’s Vine was a successful introduction but after Facebook’s new move, it will have to strive like real hard to maintain its position. No doubt Vine is a great tool but it certainly lags behind in certain features when compared with Instagram Video and until it upgrades itself majorly, it will keep on lagging behind.

Let’s take a look at the various features of Instagram video that places it on top of Vine.

Increased Video Length

Vine allows you to record just 6-seconds of video but Instagram video has increased that length to 15 seconds. The time is definitely important and based upon the user response, 6 seconds are just not enough. Now with a length of 3 to 15 seconds, you can share your stories in a more comprehensive way.

Video Editing Now Possible

Instagram allows you to delete certain portions of a video and hence edit it as you desire. Vine never thought about such a thing and you needed to be really careful when recording the video or else you had to start over again.

Manual Selection Of Cover Frame




The cover frame or the video preview image selection has always been a problem for Vine users. Instagram however allows you to select the frame yourself and that frame could be located anywhere within the video. A good frame makes the video preview a decent one in the feed.

Video Stabilization - A Piece Of Cake Now



Now you would know that without some sort of tripod stand, it is not easy to make stable videos because of the shaky hands and well, if you are on Vine, you do not have any option but to share that shaky video. The cinema feature of Instagram solves this issue for you with just a click. It automatically removes the shakiness and stabilizes your video therefore with of course a very little sacrifice in quality.


Manual Focus Made Possible




The reason why you find a lot of out-of-focus videos on Vine is because there is no option for adjusting the camera focus manually during the video and if you have some sense of understanding, you would know that an out-of-focus video is useless. Moreover, sometimes you need to manually adjust the focus point in the video, and with Instagram, you are just a tap away, while with Vine, you are helpless.

Filters Applicable To Videos



Like you have various filtering techniques for images in Instagram, you have them for videos as well. With these filters you can transform your amateur video into a professional one in no time and yes, Vine does not offer such a thing.

Share Over Multiple Platforms




Vine is designed to work perfectly with twitter only. Yes it does work with Facebook but is a no-match for the Instagram’s Facebook integration. Also, Instagram video can also be shared over other platforms like Foursquare and Tumblr other than Facebook and Twitter. Vine is however only limited to these two platforms i.e. Facebook and Twitter.
