Export and Share

Here is how to export and share your finished videos:

1. Export your video to your computer

To export your video to your computer, click the export button and choose the Local tab. Then, select the format you want to export in. Currently, Filmora supports the following formats: WMV, MP4, AVI, MOV, F4V, MKV, TS, 3GP, MPEG-2, WEBM, GIF, and MP3.

click export video

After selecting the output format, you can rename the video and change the location on your computer where you save it. You can also check the output resolution, frame rate, size, and duration before you export. To change your export settings (i.e. resolution, bit rate, and frame rate) click the SETTINGS button.

In the settings window, there are three quality levels: Best, Better, and Good. The only difference between them is the Bit Rate. You are able to adjust this or other parameters, such as Resolution, and Frame Rate in this window.

It is best to export your video with the same settings as your original video.

When you’re finished adjusting your export settings, press OK to save them. Then, after you have closed the Settings window, press the Export button in the Export window.

Note: The size of the video depends on the length of the project and the bit rate. If the file size looks too big, you can try changing the bit rate in the Settings window to make it smaller.

2. Export by the device you want to play your video on

In the Device tab under Format, you can choose to output your video according to the ideal settings for different types of devices, such as iPhones, iPads, Apple TVs, Samsung Galaxy phones, PlayStation 4s, and more. You can make manual adjustments to your settings as well by clicking the Settings button. Click export when you’re finished.

Note: exporting in this way won't automatically transfer your videos to your devices. Your videos will still be stored on your computer’s local hard drive.
