This is mostly for Instagram rather than YouTube. I ended up just opening in Quicktime and then exporting to 1080p with H.264. I shot the video originally in vertical format, so didn't have to crop. This reduced the file size from 6 GB to ~250 MB, and the quality still seemed good. Anything wrong with this approach?

If it works for your marketer, then it is fine.

Although maybe in the future you should just shoot in 1080p instead of 4K???
