When you say 'upload', do you mean 'import to EffectsLab', or are you actually asking about uploading to the internet?

EffectsLab is designed to work with MOV and AVI formats, so you will need to make sure your video is in those formats.

I'd recommend using the MOV format and the Animation codec if possible.

When you export from your editing software you will choose the export settings. When exporting to the Quicktime MOV format, you will also be able to select the codec (this is the method used for compression). The Animation codec offers excellent quality, so is a good one to use during production.
