When we talk about video editors for mobile, Kinemaster is what comes in our mind first. Kinemaster undoubtedly gives the best video editing experience on iPhone and Android smartphones. It would not be wrong to say that Kinemaster is like the Adobe Premiere Pro for mobile.

Export 4K videos in Kinemaster app

Depending on your system configuration, Kinemaster can support up to 4k resolution videos. When you export a video, you are asked to select your desired settings for resolution, frame rate (fps), and bitrate. The more higher you choose these things, the more good quality video will Kinemaster export.

Some users want to export their edited video in 4k resolution at 60 fps quality but Kinemaster doesn't show these settings in their smartphone. If you are also facing this problem on your iPhone or Android device, then this guide will show you how to fix that and enable 4K video with 60 fps support on Kinemaster app.

Enable 4K video resolution in Kinemaster


There is a feature in Kinemaster app which runs an analysis to check your phone's compatibility and then configures Kinemaster app to support 4k video quality. Kinemaster has two modes: Layer mode High Resolution mode. If it's set to Layer mode, then your Kinemaster app will support more video layers in the editor but this can reduce the capability to export videos at higher resolution.

On the other hand, high resolution mode will allow you to export videos at high resolution and frame rate but it will support less video layer. By default, Kinemaster app is set to Layer mode. You can change it to High Resolution and that may fix your problem of exporting videos in 4k at 60 fps settings. Here's how you can activate high resolution mode in Kinemaster app -
  1. First, open Kinemaster on your Android or iPhone device.
  2. Click the Settings button (gear icon) to open Kinemaster Settings.
  3. Under Information, click Device Compatibility Information option.
  4. Now click the three dots menu button at the top-right corner of the screen.
  5. Here you will see High Resolution mode option. By default, Layer mode will be selected. You just need to select High Resolution. That's it.

Once you have changed this setting in Kinemaster app, try to export any video and hopefully you will see 4k option unlocked with 60 fps settings in the export window.

Check your phone compatibility


If you are still unable to export your video in 4k resolution, it might be possible that your phone isn't compatible with Kinemaster to support 4k videos. Kinemaster has a built-in feature where you can check the compatibility of your device and also run manually analysis. Here's how you can do that -
  1. Open the Kinemaster app on your Android phone.
  2. Again click the settings gear icon.
  3. Go to Device Capability Information.
  4. Here we will see the maximum export quality limit of the Kinemaster app on your phone under Edit & Share box.
  5. You can also run a fresh analysis. Simply, click the menu button (three dots) and then click Run Analysis option. It would take some time for the analysis to get completed successfully.
