Turn Video Into Boomerang
Boomerang is a wonderful addition to Instagram and promises video fun and new formats for content. Most users take videos with the Boomerang app and publish them instantly, but some ask themselves: “Can you boomerang a pre-recorded video from your Camera Roll?” We are happy to say it’s possible to make a boomerang with a video you saved already. Read on to learn how.
How to make a boomerang out of a video?
With a little help from the app “GIF Maker – Make Video to GIFs“ you can easily turn an existing video into a boomerang and boomerang a saved video. First you have to edit the video using the boomerang maker app and from there you can share it e. g. directly to Instagram and also save it to your Camera Roll.
Turn video to boomerangGIF Maker → Create → Video to GIF → select video → Edit → Share/Save
Open the App after the download and tap “Create” in the bottom row. Now tap “Video to GIF” and allow access to your Camera Roll so you can use a pre-recorded video to turn into a boomerang. Now select a video you want to turn into a GIF.
Now tap “Next” and check if you are happy with the result. If not, you can adjust the speed of the Loop, add text, filters and stickers and edit the canvas.
The free trial only includes a specific number of video you can turn into GIFs, so choose wisely or get the Pro version. Also some of the features are limited to Pro users but if you do not want to edit your video too much, you’ll be fine with the normal version.
Once you are happy with the result tap the “Share” button at the top of your screen and select an app or save depending on where you want your video. Enjoy!
GIF Maker also offers to turn Live Photos into GIFs, which you can turn into a boomerang. However, in another article we show you how to turn Live Photos into boomrangs directly in the Instagram app!
