Since 2015, there are no more interesting inovations. I think it's an insolence that Lightroom can not export 4k video. That can't be a challenge for a programmer to provide a corresponding function. The are a lot of users asked for the support of PSB files in Lightroom, but Adobe do nothing. Adobe must be ashamed that file formats from their own house are not supported. For me is also a big mystery why Photoshop write  a file of more that 3GB for a picture with 2 layers. There are still a lot to do but Adobe presents us again and again only small chunks. I do not know how much longer I want to pay for it.

I feel confused as a customer.

I wouldn't use Lr for video editing. If you want doing video you need other tools. And Ps files with 3 layers do not have 3Gb at my site. For this problem I would like to analyse your data, to see what's the problem.

Sur I have other tools to cut videos. Here is the talk of management of small fotage which I only slightly cut and do basic adjustment. For this kind of work are all video tools to big and to dificult. Also if I have a long video and I like to have only a short sequenc it will be great to do that with LR. It can not be so difficult to provide a corresponding function. LR can already exprort HD videos why not UHD? I can't understand that.

Being able to export 4k video from Lightroom is important for users who like to have their clips organised within LR.  This is a really bad omission from the last few updates.  Fix a simple basic issue instead of adding new features.

We have yet another update for LR with no support for 4k video export.  Really pathetic from a company such as Adobe to ignore requests for basic options in a flagship product.

i recommend a powerful video converter and editor:Avdshare Video Converter, and you will find many useful functions in it.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled LR Classic Product Request (read that as a real need).

PLEASE, PLEASE bring us the ability to export slideshow video in 4K (i.e. 2160). Everyone is wanting to show slideshows on 4K conference room monitors, home TVs and even the new 4K monitors. It is hard to even find a 1080 TV larger than 27" these days, so why can't we have that feature (rather than forcing us to use Premiere Pro). Clients are beginning to gripe about seeing a 1080 slideshow following a 4K video direct from the camera and 4K still images. Thanks for "Just Doing It".

As a PC user, slideshows from LR are a great way to add a little pan and zoom quickly. I finish them in Premiere and display them on a modern (4k) display for clients. There are easier solutions for Mac users to render 4k quality pan and zoom automated slideshows via other software, but I'm using PC. I have to tell clients after they've seen the slideshow that they can look at the still images on a different monitor because the rendered video isn't a true representation of each picture. Maybe this is really demanding - I have no idea. But if it's not, it seems like a no-brainer.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom > Slideshow update needed > been years now & is totally unacceptable!.

* can't export as 4K video - can only export as 1080p. Most monitors are retina & TVs are 4K - we need an update!
* 'export video' - exporting takes an insane amount of time ie 45 minutes to 8 hours... I checked on Mac 'Activity Monitor' how much RAM - uses minimal amount. Also was only using ONE core (my computer has 8) Of course I have tweaked all the right settings to maximum - still no effect.
