Video to Lightroom ?

Hello,
After getting the basics of my new K3II and Lightroom sorted, what's the 'best' way of processing video
on my Mac mini with Lightroom ?
I don't want to clog the computer up with massive files and have two videos of 20 mins each...
Any basic tips ?


Many thanks.

Lightroom will catalog video, but has no means to edit. For that you need an external program.

There are some rudimentary video editing tools in Lightroom. See

Cool, thanks guys I'll have a look at that link.

Any other ways to edit / manage video files from the K3II ?

I was aware of the display features, but did not know that one could snip frame captures. Thanks for the link.

Main problem with the video I took is the sound quality, so a proper mic would be better....any ideas about which ones are good for live music ?
When exporting a 12 min video into 'med' quality...should it really take 40 mins ? !
Format best for web use ?

Thanks.
