If anyone has a better solution let me know, but this works for me!

This is what I do (i read somewhere on the internet) open Motion, make a 1000x1000 project, then make sure it's set to "square", set length for 15 secs, then export it from motion, import it into a final cut click "open in timeline" and walaa, your video is now a perfect instagram size, here is an example from our instagram:

Why wouldn't you just make a 1000x1000 final cut project?

Hey Bret,

I only see dimensions of 1920x1080, 1440x1080 and 1280x1080, correct me if I am missing something here

Choose custom and type in whatever dimensions you like. Wasn't always that way, but it did change awhile back.

I had to figure this out for myself today and here is how I did it:

1) Find my video clip and trim to appropriate length .

2) New project with Dimensions of 640x640

3) drop clip in new project , in the inspector go to video- spatial conform, choose fill

4) In the viewer - select 50% view, then transform and position 1920-1080 video for desired crop by 640x640 window

5 Add graphics & Share. This could not be easier....
