How To Export Video

Once you have edited your video within Pinnacle Studio, there are just a couple more steps before receiving your final file. Export your video from Pinnacle Studio to produce a single video file in a format of your choice - MP4, MOV, M4V - which you can upload to YouTube or Vimeo or host on your site, and generally share it with the world. Read on to find out how to export video.

1. Install Pinnacle Studio

To install Pinnacle Studio video editing software on your PC, download and run the installation file above. Continue following on-screen instructions to complete the setup process.

2. Open the Export Tab

When you have finished editing your project, open the Exporter by pressing the Export tab at the top of the screen. With a few clicks you can tell the Exporter everything it needs to know to output your movie or asset in the format that best fits your requirements. The Exporter will ensure that your project is complete before it is exported. If there is any missing media, your project cannot be exported until the media is either relinked or deleted from the project.
