Animation Output Settings
Below are all the output settings for Animation.
If your Animation has multiple clips, you can chose a transition for moving between them.
Select this to enable transitions.
Transition Type – Choose a type of transition:
- Cross Dissolve (default)
- Dip to Color - Use the color picker to the right to choose a color to dip to.
- Iris Round
- Iris Rectangular
- Wipe Left to Right
- Wipe Right to Left
- Wipe Top to Bottom
- Wipe Bottom to Top
- Wipe Randomly
Transition Time – The full time of the transition from one panorama to the next. The default is 1 second.
Effects – You can choose to have effects occur before and/or after the transition. The current effects are Zoom In and Zoom Out.
- Wait for transition - When selected, the After transition effect, will not occur until the transition is finished. When deselected, the effect will occur at the same time as the transition.
Zoomed FoV – This value will determine how far the panorama will zoom in. The default value is 20.00 degrees.
Zoom Speed – The speed of the zoom effect.
These are the movie settings. You can choose to output just a movie file or just an image sequence (frames) or both.
Resolution – Define the movie’s resolution (width x height in pixels).
Frame Rate – Define the movie’s frame rate. A frame rate of 60 will produce smooth results.
Motion blur – Select Apply motion blur to apply motion blur to the video which will help to produce a smooth motion in the video.
Samples - Determine the number of samples to create. 3 is the default and should work well with most projects.
Shutter Angle - This will determine how much motion is recorded in each frame. The default is 180º and is a common setting. A larger angle would create more blur to point of smearing while a smaller angle would create a more stuttered motion.
Video file – Select Generate video file to enable the video file output.
✭ Note: To generate a video file, you must have FFmpeg installed. Learn more.
MPEG4 Quality - Select the video quality.
- Normal - High - Lossless (This option may have trouble playing back on some systems.)
- Delete frame files after video creation - In order for the video to be created, each frame must first be generated. Select this option to delete the frames afterwards.
Format – Select the file format of the frames.
Quality – If you choose JPEG as the frame format, then select the quality of the JPEG.
Filename – This is the filename for the frames. By default they are named
pano and will count up through the sequence, but you can change this to anything you prefer.
