Instagram has added several new options to its Boomerang camera mode for Stories, including ‘SloMo’, ‘Echo’ and ‘Duo’ as well as trimming.
Here’s how the new features work:
- SlowMo – Essentially it slows down your Boomerang to capture details. Play your video for at least two seconds instead of one second and reduce your boomerangs for half-speed to experience the slow-mo effect on the video.
- Echo – This feature “creates a double vision effect” that adds motion blur to anything that appears to be moving behind your video.
- Duo – adds “both speed and slow-mo effect to your Boomerang, adding a texturized effect.”
- Trimming – Shorten your Boomerang with similar controls to iPhone’s camera roll or the Instagram feed video composer. “Edit the length of your Boomerang, and when it starts or ends.”
The new options give users more variety with their posts.
In addition, Instagram has also added capacity to ‘trim and tweak’ your Boomerang loop in order to better control your final clip.
