Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing the file format for video, part of Lightroom: Working with Video.
…Inside of Lightroom, you'll find three options for exporting your video clips.…Two of them will apply the effects and one just goes back to the original file.…Let's talk about which one you're going to choose.…Inside of Lightroom if you were in your library, you may decide…that you want to get a particular clip out to share with another user.…So, for example, let's say I had this file.…And I was real happy with it.…I made a few tweaks.…I got the black point right.…I, I like the contrast of the clip.…It felt pretty good.…And I wanted to share that with someone.…Well, piece of cake.…With the clip selected I can choose File > Export.…And what's going to happen is essentially you have a choice.…Now, right here we're exporting to a hard drive and you'll see our format choices.…DPX, H.264, or Original comma unedited file.…The most common choice is going to be an H.264 file.…This is a broadly compatible MPEG-4 video file…that's designed to play back on everything from…Blu-ray players and set top boxes, to iPads…to cell phones, to YouTube, you name it.…
