Exporting Storyline 3 to MP4

Jul 02, 2018


I just wanted to check if a Storyline 3 file can be exported to an MP4 format?

Just want to add, publishing a large Storyline 360 course to video will take forever, especially in HD. Mine has 72 slides with screencast and text boxes. My first publishing was still in progress after 24 hours. I had to force close Storyline 360 and re-publish at 540px, it reduced to 2 hours. Very inconvenient for revision. So you have to plan way ahead.

Hi Sherry,

Great question! 

Is this in regards to exporting a screen recording created in Storyline 3? If so, then the MP4 videos will be exported with a compression format of H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, an encoding profile of High @L3.0, and a frame rate of 25 fps. 

You can find more details on this here:

Thanks, Vincent. Although I did search for this before I posted, I guess I didn't search the right thing. That's helpful.

What I am stuck on now though is the section in the link you provided called "Using the Screencast Preview Window
To open the screencast preview window, go to the Slides tab on the ribbon, click Insert Recording, and select the screencast you want to export."

I must not be in the right place because the Slides tab doesn't have any item called Insert Recording. Also, why is it insert recording when I want to export? Couldn't find a screenshot anywhere to see what that looks like. Thanks.

Hi Sherry,

Happy to help here! 

I am sorry about the confusion! It looks like this workflow is a bit different now. After navigating to the Slides tab, instead of clicking on insert recording, you will want to click on the Record Screen drop-down arrow to access the Screencast Preview

Even though this guide is for Storyline 360, the same workflow can be applied to Storyline 3:
