Animation Output


Output Options

1. Resolution
Set the resolution for the animation being rendered. Choose from the Preset drop-down, or enter in your own custom dimensions. The current aspect ratio from the Real-time View will be maintained, regardless if you enter the value in the the Height and width fields or if you select a preset. The presets are calculated based on the width of the view.

2. Time Range
Specify the range of the animation to be rendered. Default is “Entire Duration.” You can also set the designated work area to be rendered, as well a specific frame range. The “duration” and “frames” auto updates when time range is changed.

3. Video Output
Enable this to generate a video of the animation.

Known issue

Workaround

  • Use a Name Template that does not contain any of the parameters switched by the Switch Event (Active Studio, Camera, Model Sets or Environment).
