If you want to import video, you just have to do the same way you import a photo. You just need to select a file, import then drag and drop. The only difference is your file name extension. It reflects the video format instead of NEF, JPEG, CR2, DNG, or TIFF.

Lightroom will never allow you to edit videos in the develop module. If you click outside the library module, you will automatically get the message that reads, Video is not supported. Just as you can do with a photo, you’re free to edit overall exposure and white balance among others. You can edit white balance and exposure on your video in the library module. It is also important to note that you can apply presets by just clicking on the preset tab. Lightroom will come in multiple presets that have been perfectly customized for video editing.
Lightroom editing also allows you to apply your favorite Lightroom Presets to the video. It is good to know that most of the adjustments applied to pictures aren’t applicable with videos in Lightroom.
