If you are creating a video project for class you may be asked to upload the file to OAKS, bring it to class to show in a classroom, or upload it to a social media service (i.e., YouTube, Dropbox, Google Drive). In these cases, it is best to export your project to a medium file size that can be transported or uploaded.
