    I am new to Timeline but old to Unity by about 12 years.

    I must be missing something. I have been looking at both Timeline and Cinemachine and I don't see
    a workflow to record or export to video. Specifically mp4.
    I am sure it is done but I can't seem to find it.

    Can someone please point me to this kind of information??
    Thanks!!

    Yep! Unity provides a free Media Recorder that you can grab from the Asset Store
    The recorder comes with a Recorder Track that can be used in Timeline to trigger a video recording.

    If you have any question suggestion or request please use the recorder forum.

    hope this helps!

    Unity recorder is available via the Package Manager.

    There is a Recorder track that you can add to Timeline - configure the clip settings to output either a movie or Image Sequence. I'd recommend using the Image Sequence for higher quality output, you can stitch the images together in any video editing software (Resolve etc) to create the final output video.
