No. Videowrap works with Video footage. You will have to render your project from whatever Lab product you are using to a video file before VideoWrap can do anything with it.

However, the export options form any of the Lab products are fairly extensive, so its likely you can export directly from your Lab product to an appropriate format for distribution. Other than the Flash formats, of course, which you can't render to from any of the Lab products.

ELab has only three export options. AVI, QT and PNG/TGA.

On the contrary, in Quicktime alone there are nearly twenty different compression schemes to choose from. I don't know how many are available in AVI.

You export by Rendering.
