Once you’ve finished recording, pulling in external media and editing in ScreenFlow, it’s time to turn your project into an actual video. There are many ways you can export your video depending on its size, length and purpose. To make exporting your video a lot easier, we’ve built-in common destinations and export tools directly into ScreenFlow. From basic automatic export to more complex batch exports, the following post will cover the many ways you can export your videos using ScreenFlow.

The Automatic Export tool in ScreenFlow will allow you to quickly export your video. 

  1. Click on File menu in ScreenFlow and scroll down to Export
  2. Under Type select Automatic
  3. Configure your export settings such as encoding quality, resolution and more. *For resolution, we recommend 1920×1080 or 100% of original
  4. Name your video and click Export

If you like to have more control over the export process and want to adjust some of the settings then Custom Export is a good option for you. 

  1. Click on File menu in ScreenFlow and scroll down to Export
  2. Under Type select Manual
  3. Select your Preset from popular options like Web, ProRes, Apple TV, GIF and more
  4. Click Customize to and edit the video and audio settings. At this time, you’ll be able to configure your Framerate, Datarate, Codec, Mono or Stereo and more as needed
  5. Click Manage to adjust your presets or to create custom presets
  6. Name your video and click Export

The Publish To tool in ScreenFlow allows you to export videos directly to popular built-in destinations like YouTube, Wistia, Facebook and more.

  1. Click on File menu in ScreenFlow and scroll down to Publish To
  2. Select your desired destination in the list of preset destinations
  3. Adjust your video and account settings. *This step will vary depending on the platform you select
  4. At this time, you’ll have the option to ‘Save copy to disk’, which will save a copy to your computer – you can bypass this step to save room on your computer
  5. Name your video and click Export

A good trick to test how your video is going to look (without having to export the entire video) is to export a small section of your video using the Export Selected Range tool in ScreenFlow. 

  1. To mark where you’d like your video to begin, click on the timeline and select I on your keyboard. Next, select where you’d like your video to end, or an output, by clicking on the timeline again and typing O on your keyboard.
  2. Click on File menu in ScreenFlow and scroll down to Export Selected Range
  3. Configure your export settings such as encoding quality, resolution and more.
  4. Name your video and click Export

When making a series of videos, you can avoid exporting each video individually by using the Batch Export tool in ScreenFlow.

  1. Click on File menu in ScreenFlow and scroll down to Batch Export
  2. Edit your export configurations as needed. Select an output folder and edit your preset, dimensions and video options.
  3. Click the + icon in the left-hand corner under Documents and select the videos you’d like to export
  4. Click Begin and your videos will export
