Why Does HitFilm Pro 2017 Doesn't Have A Direct Youtube Export Feature?
1) Every time YouTube changes code FXHOME had to rewrite/fix the direct upload. This is time better spent improving other parts of the software.
2) If an error happens with your upload YouTube doesn't tell you there's a problem until the very end of the process. Then you have to do it again. It is absolutely smarter to render to your computer then upload. That way if there's a YouTube problem you don't rerender your video, you just re upload the rendered video.
99.9% odds that Hitfilm Express 2017 will not upload directly to YouTube either.
Oh Wow. Thanks For The Answer!
