Supported Video Formats for Export

LumaFusion supports export in H.264 or H.265 (HEVC). Newer iPads and iPhones support H.265 (HEVC) encoding), including with transparency (Quicktime .mov file format only). Note: For HEVC with Transparency, due to current iOS issues with 4K clips, we recommend limiting export resolution to 1080p when using transparency.

LumaFusion supports export in ProRes on certain iOS devices in iOS 15 and later. See Using ProRes Media in LumaFusion in iOS 15

All audio in movies is currently encoded using AAC. For audio, AAC encoding in an .m4a file or PCM encoding in a .wav file is supported.
