Trouble with .MOV format on Mac

Recommended Posts

I'm having much trouble using the Mac version. I used AM under Windows before - now I have a Mac since September. I'm trying the whole day tu use an animated move file as a decal. It doesn't schow any sutable picture. neither in the OpenGL view nor in the rendering. somtimes it crashes during rendering. The Mac version doesnt seem to accept other video formats than mov. I tried to convert it back an forth, but nothing changed - any ideas?

if your using a movie for a decal or anything

it must be converted to TGA format then apply

Yes, I already head that idea, but I dont know how to accomplish that - is there any program that converts Videos into Image sequences on Mac? Best would be Freeware

I believe A:M can do that. Import the animation and then "save Animation As" and click to show all the options and save it as an image sequence.

if you have a mac use imove

export out as an image sequence

 

you can also use AM

import image sequence then export

however you might have an alpha channel issue

 

i would do imove first

Ok, I tried both:

In iMovie there is no export for image sequences or at least I didn't find one.

I tried the way through A:M, but it was as wrong as the pictures showed in A:M itself. just some kind of noise in the images - not the real thing. Any new ideas?

Ahhh, I found it out myself - I can export in iMovie using Quicktime - there I can select image sequence!

Thanks - that seems to work.

I don't have iMovie, but this page says that it can export an image sequence. I know that Quicktime Pro can as well.

 

Hope that helps.

Another problem:

If I render an animation I can only use the mov format. But if I play the rendered file it is only dark - no picture - just audio if there was such.

How can I render an animtion and have it in the file at the end?

 

Thanks

Hi Florian80

 

I had the same problems, The gang here pointed me to this.

On your render window turn the Alpha Buffer to off.

Hope that works.
