Separating production and testing environments

If you already shipped Remotion Lambda to production, you can upgrade without incurring any downtime. Each version of Remotion Lambda has a schema identifier (in the format of 2021-08-12) that will increment whenever a breaking change is introduced.

If you have Remotion Lambda in production and are testing locally, upgrading Remotion Lambda in your project locally and then rendering a video will yield an error message that the versions are mismatching. Simply deploy a new function npx remotion lambda functions deploy and your local environment will talk to the new function, while production will talk to the older function.

If everything works and you commit and deploy the change to production, it will start talking to the new version and you can safely remove the old function.
