As described in Lesson 8, click the Export Movie
button on the Movie Toolbar or choose File/Export Movie
menu, the Movie Export Window below will appear.
In the Current Settings
you can choose export all sequences, only the current sequence, or a sequence
range. You can select one of the 7 export
formats (Image Sequence, AVI Movie, Animated
GIF, Flash Movie, Web Page, Screen Saver and Standalone EXE) offered in the
format list. You can also find the info about movie length, speed, and duration.
Click the Format button ()
to learn more about the export format.
Now you can click the Export
to start export. When export, you can click the Cancel button to cancel
the export process, and no resulting files will be created. You can click the
Export button more than once to export the same morph as different format or
using different settings.
In the Export Information
you can see the percentage on the progress bar during the export process, once
done, further information about the elapsed time and resulting files will be
There is a group of buttons ()
to mange the resulting files.
- Open: Click this button to open the resulting file with the system associated program.
- Send: Do you want to share your proud morphs with your friends? Just click this button and then fill in the destination email address.
- Erase: If the result is not satisfied, simply click this button to delete the resulting files.
Click the Show/Hide Options
to show/hide the export settings and options. By default, you see a simple and
clean export interface as the option items are hidden.
You can set some parameters for
the current format. Each format has its own parameters.
- JPEG Quality: Affects the quality of exported JPEG
images and flash movies. The default value is 75. The bigger the value is
set, the higher the export quality will be, as well as the more rapidly the
export file size will increase. Try to set it to different value, and
investigate the quality and size of the export file to get an appropriate value
- Image Resolution: You can set the DPI value for the exported
still images if you will use them for printing. The default value is 0 which means
each image format will use its own default resolution.
- Export 32-Bit Image: If this option is checked, you
can export 32-bit with alpha images in BMP, PNG, TIFF or TGA format.
- AVI Speed: Set the frame rate of exported AVI files from 1 to 60 frames per second. The default
value is 15.
- Export Compressed AVI: If this option is
checked, you can use any installed video codec to compress AVI movies into
smaller files. In most cases, make this option unchecked and you can export
uncompressed AVI files directly. It is strongly recommended to create
uncompressed AVI files if you want to import the results into video editing
- Export 32-Bit AVI: If this option is checked, you can
export 32-bit with alpha AVI movies. You can then import 32-bit AVIs into video editing software as
overlay video clips.
- GIF Speed: Set the frame rate of exported GIF files from 1 to 60 frames per second. The default
value is 15.
- Export Looping Animated GIF: If this option is
checked, the resulting Animated GIF files will be looping.
- Export Transparent GIF: You can export a transparent
morph to a transparent Animated GIF file if this option is checked.
- Transparency Threshold: Use this value to control the
transparent area in the resulting file. The pixels which alpha is lower than the
threshold will be transparent.
- Flash Speed: Set the frame rate of exported Flash
files from 1 to 60 frames per second. The default value is 12.
- Export Looping Flash: If this option is
checked, the resulting Flash files will be looping.
- Add an URL to Flash: When you export a morph in Flash
format, you can add a URL to the resulting Flash movie so that the viewers can
easily reach the URL with just one click. It's especially useful for web
- Export Reverse Frames:
Some additional frames will be appended to the resulting movie for smooth
playing loop. For instance, normal exported frames are No.1, 2, 3, ..., 15
frame, then the No.14, 13, 12, ..., 2 frame will be appended after No. 15
frame if this option is checked.
- Include Source Video Clip: If this option is checked,
all frames of the source AVI videos can be exported to resulting morphs. Note,
this option is only available in FantaMorph Pro and Deluxe.
- Remove Duplicated Frame: Eliminate the duplicated
frame from the end or the beginning of two adjacent sequences.
- Use Hardware Acceleration: When hardware acceleration
is enabled, you can get the best export performance. But you should disable this
function if your system has problem with hardware acceleration. Besides,
the maximum export size depends on display card if hardware acceleration is
enabled, in most cases it is less than 4096 x 4096 pixels. So if you want to export very large images for print,
you also need to turn off this switch so that you can export images up to 16384
x 16384 pixels.
- Save Project Before Export: If this option is checked,
the current project will be auto saved before export.
- Auto Open After Export:
If this option is checked, the resulting file will be automatically opened
with the system associated program after export.
- Export to Project Directory: If this option is checked,
the exported results will be located in the project directory instead of the
export directory. This makes you to save a source project as well as its
resulting files in the same directory.
