Q: I edited a video with DaVinci Resolve, but I can't save my editing to MP4 (or something like that). It only saved to a .drp file. This file will not upload to YouTube and isn't supported by any other program I have. I used a video converter but it didn't work either. Please help!
A: DaVinci Resolve is a professional and powerful one-stop editing software, including video editing, color correction, visual effects and audio post production. The DRP file represents the DaVinci Resolve Project. As its name suggests, it is exclusively for DaVinci Resolve and is not a real video file. It does not store actual data of video and audio. It is just a reference file to the video and audio files and settings information. As a result, it cannot be opened or converted by any third-party tool. In other words, in addition to DaVinci Resolve, other so-called DRP to MP4 converters are scams. The following article will detail how to export DaVinci Resolve to MP4.
Few people know how to export DRP to MP4, especially for novice users of DaVinci Resolve. Unlike other video editing tools, if you want to export video, you will choose Save as, Export, Render and other similar options. DaVinci Resolve has different operating steps and methods. Here's the tutorial of how to export in DaVinci resolve.
Step 1. In order to make DaVinci Resolve export MP4, first of all, run DaVinci Resolve and click on File > Import Project in the upper left corner to import and load the DRP file.
