Unable to render vertical videos for Instagram
on May 30, 2020 at 3:21:10 am

Good Day Everyone!

I just have a question. I am unable to render Instagram video size of 1080 x 1920. Error is basically the same with another topic here "Invalid Argument" . I have searched the web for possible fix on this like removing the favorites files (I'm not sure what it's called but it's basically backing up the favorite rendering settings, or something)

I tried every possible thing that I saw anyone suggested. Those seem to work for them but not for me. I know I am getting the invalid argument message because the render setting is not an Industry standard because this is vertical? I'm not quite sure about this. Please shed some light on this as I am not very technical when it comes to things like these.


Thanks for helping!

Hi John, Thanks for the info.

My media differs from client to client, but mostly mp4 (if that's what you are pertaining to)

I have tried the mediainfo link that you suggested and this is what I've got for one of my projects that I tried rendering for Instagram: (file attached)

I'm just also preparing myself for clients who need Instagram videos as I am a freelance video editor.

Hi Ryan


I did manage to reproduce your problem by trying to render with the SONY AVC/MVC (*.mp4;*.m2ts;*.avc). I got the same error message.

I rendered without any problems using MainConcept AVC/AAC (*.mp4;*.avc) with these settings:



The only changes that I've made to the template was by choosing (Custom Frame Size) and changing the Width and Height and the bit rate.

Let us know if it worked for you.

Cheers !

I also found that when I tested it that it worked with MainConcept AVC/AAC.

Hi John and Francois,

Sorry for the delayed response. I just tried it right now and realized that my settings seems different. I forgot to mention I am using Vegas Pro 17.

What I have are:

MainConcept MPEG-1
MainConcept MPEG-2

The only option that I have with AVC/AAC is MAGIX AVC/AAC MP4. This one worked, I was able to render the video but the video is still the same landscape 16:9 orientation instead of the 9:16 aspect ratio.

(My apologies, I'm a newbie here and I don't know how to post a screenshot of my render settings window)


Thank you very much for the help guys! I greatly appreciate it!

Hi Ryan

If you look at my first post, if you set your render parameters exactly to mine, to you get the same results ?

Hi Francois,

I tried exactly that but some of your options are different from mine. I can't seem to post a screenshot here so you can see what I'm talking about ☺

Thanks again!

HI, it looks like MainConcept AVC/ACC is disable in the Internal Preferences.

So go to the Option settings at the top of the screen and the Hold Down the SHIFT key and select Preferences. You will now see an Additional tab called Internal. In the search box at the bottom type MAIN and then when you see that in the list change FALSE to TRUE

You will now see that Option in the MainConcept render selection

Woooowww!!!!!!

I've never heard or seen of this before. I've been using Vegas since version 4 but this is a big wow for me.

Why are you (John and Francois) so good with Vegas? You must be one of the engineers 😃

I will definitely try that as well and let you know. Thanks John!
