How Do I Save a QuickTime Video After Editing?

After you’ve spent hours editing your QuickTime video, the last thing you want is to lose your hard work. Fortunately, saving your edited QuickTime video is a simple process. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the steps you need to follow to save your QuickTime video after editing.

Step 1: Export Your Edited Video

The first step in saving your edited QuickTime video is to export it. To do this, go to the “File” menu and select “Export”. You can also use the keyboard shortcut “Command+E” on a Mac or “Ctrl+E” on a PC.

Step 1.1: Choose Your Export Settings

Once you’ve selected “Export”, a new window will open with several export options. Here, you can choose the format for your exported video, such as MPEG-4 or H.264.

Note: Make sure you choose a format that is compatible with the device or platform where you plan to share or upload your video.

You can also choose the resolution of your exported video by selecting one of the pre-set options or entering custom values.

Pro Tip: If you’re unsure what settings to use, consider exporting at a higher resolution than necessary so that you have more flexibility when it comes time to share or upload your video.2: Choose Where to Save Your Exported Video

After choosing your export settings, select where you want to save your exported video by clicking on the “Export As” drop-down menu and choosing a location on your computer or external drive.

Step 2: Confirm Your Export Settings and Start Exporting

Once you’ve chosen where to save your exported video and selected all of your desired export settings, review everything one last time before clicking “Export”.

  • Double-check your export settings: Make sure you’ve selected the correct format and resolution for your video.
  • Choose a good quality setting: If you’re exporting at a lower resolution, consider choosing a higher quality setting to ensure your video looks good when viewed on different devices.
  • Check the estimated file size: Make sure you have enough storage space available for the exported video.

Once you’ve confirmed everything is set up correctly, click “Export” to start the exporting process.

Step 3: Wait for Your Video to Export

Depending on the length of your edited QuickTime video and the export settings you chose, exporting may take several minutes or longer.

While waiting for your video to export, avoid using other applications or programs that could slow down or interrupt the process.

Step 4: Check Your Exported Video

Once your edited QuickTime video has finished exporting, navigate to where you saved it and double-click on it to open and check that everything looks good.

If something doesn’t look right, go back into QuickTime and adjust your editing or export settings as necessary. Then repeat steps one through three until you’re satisfied with the final product.

Congratulations! You’ve Successfully Saved Your Edited QuickTime Video

By following these simple steps, you can save your edited QuickTime video and share it with others. Remember to always double-check your export settings before exporting so that you can be confident in the final product.
