Thank you. Very clear instructions. I learnt about features of which I was not aware and which will prove very helpful.

Allison Sheridan

So glad you liked it, Ian. It was a lot of fun to create.

Thank you for the excellent Screenium Screen Casts Online Allison. I've bought and tried the software but am at a loss re saving the composition in a format that Quicktime or other video player can read. Is there a way to save it as an MP4 for example or do I have to get a video converter to be able to watch videos (I don't want to use Screenium for that). If I need a video converter would you be able to recommend one for Big Sur please?

Clare - In the far upper right is an export button which has options for creating video formats that will work with QuickTime and others.

Thanks Allison, I had tried saving but only at the full resolution and 60 fps (which only saved in "composition" format). I hadn't realised you had to drop the frame rate and/or resolution in order to change the format. All good now, thank you.

I demonstrate exporting and opening in QuickTime at 26:42 into the video.

Clare - I think something else changed to fix this for you. I just exported the same French-language composition at full resolution and 60fps and it is also an M4V openable in QuickTime. I think you might be mixing up saving and exporting. Saving will save as a composition, Exporting will allow you to define the format.
