Instagram is developing a new Stories feature called Stop Motion, which lets you create videos based on captured images. Videos are a very successful format on social networks, and so Instagram is trying to develop new tools to help users create video presentations in an easy and effective way.
In the Instagram Stories menu in the main navigation, you can see a new button called Stop Motion. Place a subject in front of the phone camera and capture successive frames by pressing the function to create a simple video. After taking a photo, the frame lightens slightly on the screen so you can easily determine the correct location and movement. Only ten frames can be created in the test version so far.
This new feature will be particularly beneficial for businesses and marketing agencies, as they will be able to create a small video clip in Instagram Stories in a very simple way without having to make a real video. Stop Motion can be used to present products where it will be easy to show the product from all sides and angles. Or, you can apply the feature to shots of people as they move or switch between different situations and environments. There are no limits to imagination and creativity.
The function is under development and testing, and it is not yet clear when Instagram will officially introduce it.
