Burning Question: How Do I Edit and Export with My NLE for TikTok?

Burning Question: How Do I Edit and Export with My NLE for TikTok?

TikTok is the short video social media app du jour so we’ll talk about how to edit and export with your pro video tools with TikTok distribution.  Below, we’ll share a couple of videos for Premiere Pro users, then tutorials for Final Cut Pro, Vegas Pro, and DaVinci Resolve. But first, basic TikTok requirements.

TikTok Basic Video Requirements

Resolution: 1080×1920 at the largest. This is a vertical video, as TikTok is a mobile app.

Aspect Ratio: 9:16. 1:1 also works but it will not fill the screen.

Frame Rate: 60fps

File types: mp4, .mov, .mpeg, (.3gp, .gif or .avi also work for advertising).

Video codec: H.264 encoded

Duration: 9-15 seconds is suggested. The minimum is 5 seconds. You can upload up to 60 seconds if you string four 15 secondTikTok videos together.

Video File Size: 287.6 MB maximum for iOS. 72 MB maximum for Andriod
Useful tips:

  • TikTok likes vertical video. If you’re old school, like me, you will be cringing at that thought, but you’ll get used to it.
  • Center your content because the edges of your video can be obscured. There is a 150px margin on top and bottom, as well as a 64px margin along the left and right sides.

It should be mentioned that this information tends to change as the apps are updated, but at the time of the publication of this article, it’s accurate.
