Instagram Reel Maker
Make Instagram Reels that stand out with music, animated text and more!
Thanks to Flixier, you can create engaging Instagram Reels right in your web browser, even if you don’t have advanced editing skills or previous experience. Our online reel maker makes it easy to bring over videos and songs from your computer, YouTube or SoundCloud. You can cut and combine videos easily, add background music and audio effects as well as generate captions, add motion text and things like animated Follow buttons. On top of that, Flixier runs well on anything, including old laptops, so you don’t have to worry about having an expensive computer in order to use it.
Use a video creator optimized for Instagram
The Flixier video creator offers plenty of presets that are optimized for vertical platforms such as Instagram Reels. You can easily switch between landscape and portrait mode when making a video: just choose a 9:16 (vertical) aspect ratio in the settings.
Create Instagram Reels with catchy songs or trending audios
Add audio to your Reels easily with Flixier! Upload audio files from your own computer, or import songs from SoundCloud and YouTube by copying and pasting the link. If you want to be completely original, you can use Flixier to record your microphone or camera as well as browse our stock audio library that’s filled with dozens of non-copyrighted songs and sound effects.
Add animated calls to action to your Instagram Reels
Anyone can add stylish animated text and motion titles to their videos using Flixier. No animation experience is required! All you have to do is open the Motion tab and choose from one of the many professionally animated motion graphics, then drag and drop it onto your video. From there, you can customize its colors, text and even fonts to make it fit your aesthetic!
Generate captions for your Instagram Reels
Add captions to your Instagram Reels to improve engagement and make them more accessible. All you have to do is right click your video (or audio track) and select Generate Subtitle. Flixier will create synchronized captions that you can add to your video, edit manually and customize however you see fit.
How to make Instagram Reels?
Start by clicking the Get Started button in the top right corner of the screen to open the Flixier editor in your web browser. Then, drag over any media that you want to use in your Reels. If the videos and audio files aren’t on your computer, you can bring them over from YouTube, SoundCloud, or cloud storage services using the buttons in the import menu that’s displayed on screen.
Once you have everything you need, start dragging your clips over to the timeline at the bottom of the screen. Arrange them in any order you want, cut out unwanted parts and overlap two clips on the same track to add transitions. You can also add Text and ‘Follow & Like’ buttons from the tabs on the left side of the screen, while the Audio tab lets you browse through our library of copyright-free songs and sound effects.
When you’re done editing your reel, click the Export button in the top right corner of the screen. Flixier will take a few minutes to process your video and then it will be saved to your computer.
