Step 2) Choose a thumbnail

On the export page, you can choose a thumbnail from three different options. The options displayed depend on where the blue playhead is located on your timeline at the time of the last save.

Step 3) Set your export preferences

The next step is to set the title, format, and resolution for your export. By default, your export format will be set to Video. However, you can export any video in the Audio only or GIF format by selecting that option here to automatically convert the format. The resolution options available depend on the plan your account is currently on.

If you are not sure which plan you are currently on, please refer to this page for details about the max video resolution available with each plan to clarify your options.

Step 4) Choose your destinations

After setting your export preferences, choose the destinations you would like to export to. To publish to an external site such as Google Drive or YouTube, simply select the icon for that destination and sign in to that account. Once connected, the icon will highlight blue and your export will automatically publish to the selected destinations after you select EXPORT.
