How to Export Your Dataset in

Are you grappling with the ins and outs of data annotation? Whether you're dealing with image annotation, video annotation, or a myriad of other types, understanding how to effectively export your annotated data can be just as crucial as the annotation process itself. This blog post serves as an introduction to our latest video tutorial focusing on data export options in

Why Data Export Matters

Before you dive headfirst into the world of data annotation, it's crucial to consider two pivotal aspects:

  • The dataset output format your machine learning model requires: Different machine learning frameworks and algorithms necessitate specific formats. Knowing this beforehand will save you time and effort. 
  • The labeling tool you'll use: Select a robust tool that can support a variety of dataset output formats. This brings us to the capabilities of

With, you have a plethora of export formats to choose from. Why is this essential? Because the format in which you export your data impacts its compatibility with machine learning models and frameworks. To give you a lay of the land, we offer an in-depth exploration of popular formats by task and use case in the video.

Know Before You Annotate

Before even starting your annotation journey, always consult the documentation. It provides an exhaustive list of export formats supported by  This will help you decide which annotation types—be it bounding boxes, masks, polygons, or others—are best suited for your particular project.  Different annotation types generate different dataset output options.

Putting Your Annotations to Work

Once you’ve chosen the appropriate annotation types and completed the annotation process, you can proceed to export your dataset. Here’s where the fun begins. You can export just one type of annotation or mixed annotations into a single file. If your project demands attribute-based labeling, you can also configure and seamlessly export these.

Configuring Attributes for Specific Formats

Our video tutorial includes a guide on how to export attributes and how they will appear in the exported files.

Video Annotation Exports

Video annotations come with their unique set of challenges and rewards. The tutorial covers how to export annotated videos in formats that either support or don’t support tracks. The choice of the format has significant implications on how the data can be utilized later.
