Export your video project
If you’ve been editing your video, you will need to export it out of your editing software before you can submit it to us. Typically you will be exporting to the file format .mp4
How to export from OpenShot or iMovie
OpenShot: Go to File > Export
iMovie: Go to File > Share > File…
