Facebook Gaming has launched “Clips to Reels,” a new feature which allows content creators to turn their live gameplay clips into Reels. With this new feature, creators can now cut clips from their favorite gameplay moments down to a vertical, 60-second format. Facebook says the feature enables creators to easily share highlights from within their Creator Studio Clips Library.
“The tool will do the rest of the work to align the correct layout for Reels,” wrote Facebook in a blog post. “When you’re done, simply navigate to the Share tab to preview the Reel, add a caption, include hashtags, and post it directly to your page. If you want to add stickers, music, or GIFs, you can download the completed Reel and then re-upload it to Instagram and Facebook to utilize each apps creative tools.”
To use the feature, one must visit the Creator Studio portal on their desktop and find the Clips category. From there, you can pick the clip you want to convert into a Reel. From the drop-down menu, you then select the “Create Reel” option and can trim down the clip to your desired length.
This new feature shows Meta is betting big on Reels, evidenced by the fact that its Q1 2022 earnings revealed that Reels make up more than 20% of the time people spend on Instagram. With this new feature, it’s a safe bet that those numbers will skyrocket by the time the company releases its next earning report on July 27th.
