Hey all, I've been uploading a lot of Mavic videos to my Instagram and I cannot get them to upload in good quality for the life of me! More detail below, but everything looks great when I watch back on my laptop and even after airdropping to my phone, but then when I upload to Instagram kiss the quality goodbye... sorry to plug my page, but feel free to check instagram @jtcfilms for reference on how bad the quality drop is :/ thanks for any and all help!

Details:
-Editing in Final Cut Pro X w/settings in screenshot below or 1920x1080 resolution || 29.97 Rate || Apple ProRes 422
-Drone settings screenshotted below or 4K/30fps || .MOV file
-Exported from laptop to iPhone X using AirDrop

Thanks for sharing. But unfortunately this doesnt really help me with uploading to Instagram. Was hoping someone out there had a lot of experience exporting a bunch of different file types from their Mavic.

Thanks!
 
I do 640x640 23.976 square pixels h.264 with a max of 10-12mbps target bitrate.

I try to crop not scale to my instagram video (@_creativmotion for examples), you can also use a widescreen format that will remove letterboxing from your hd videos.

edit: I then transfer them to my phone from my pc using sendanywhere app
