Clipchamp automatically saves progress while you work on your video. However, if you've finished editing and are ready to download the video to your computer or share it with others online, it's time to export.

Step 1. Click the export button in the top right of the editing interface

Step 2. Select your desired video resolution

You'll see a screen where you need to choose your desired video quality.

  • 480p video quality is suitable for drafts.

  • 720p video quality is suitable for social media videos.

  • 1080p HD video quality is suitable for video streaming platforms and presentations.

If you've used a premium feature and are on a Free plan, you'll see diamond symbols next to the exporting options.

If you're not ready to upgrade, export in 720p or 1080p watermarked.


Upgrade before exporting to the Essentials plan.

Step 3. Export your video

The video will start exporting and you'll see a progress bar with a percentage indicator.

If your video is slow to export or doesn't export, see this help article for tips on how to improve the export speed. Note that higher resolutions will take longer to export.

Once your video has finished exporting, your video will automatically save to your computer.
