4. Go to File>Export>Media.

5. Go to Format.

Exporting for YouTube, Vimeo, DVD Digital Copy, Facebook.

6. Under Format go to H.264

7. Under Preset select the following

  • YouTube 480p, 720p, 1080p dependant on the original quality of your video e.g. 1080p=1920×1080, 720p=1280×720, 480p=854×480
  • Vimeo SD Wide, 720p, 1080p dependant on the original quality of your video e.g. 1080p=1920×1080, 720p=1280×720, 480p=854×480
  • Facebook 720pTIP: You don’t want to export your video at a higher quality than your original video. For example if your video was only filmed at 720p (1280×756) there’s no point exporting it at 1080p (1920×1080). It will only make the video file size larger than it needs to be.TIP: Make sure you are exporting the video out at the same frame rate as the original video. You can double check the frame rate of your original video by…

a) Right clicking your video in the project window and selecting ‘Properties’.

TIP: I usually recommend naming it…’Description_ExportSetting’. For example ‘TheFlashTrailer_YouTube1080p’. This comes in use especially if you are exporting the video out for different purposes.

11. If you have rendered your video, tick ‘Use Previews’ as it will save time during the export as it will make use of the render files you have created already.
