How to export from Premiere Pro to Instagram

Stop Letting Instagram Ruin Your Videos with this export settings.
Currently, Instagram supports three video formats.
Ratio 1 to 1. 1,9 to 1. 4 to 5. In order to see what kind of video settings we have initially.

Click the ‘Sequence’ > ‘Sequence Settings’

As we see our video format is 16 to 9. The frame rate is 50fps. Such settings are not suitable for us since Instagram cuts the size and compress the frame rate to 30fps.
