Back for more, AVI import.

Recommended Posts

Coming back to something I really enjoyed a long time ago. My last foray into AM was with 2005 version.

 

I've created a short animation using Windows Movie Maker. It consists of 13 images with some simple transitions, basically a slideshow. I am using Pazera PS MPEG to AVI converter to get the AVI. I have tried every CODEC available with the converter, but when I attempt import the AVI I just get a dialog box saying "IMPORT NULLOBJECT". What am I doing wrong? Should I be using a particular CODEC? Thanks for any help, glad to be back!

Welcome back, Terry!

If you can export your video to a numbered targa or jpg sequence that will certainly import.

 

In A:M's render settings I see five options for AVI compression settings.

I recommend "Full Frames (Uncompressed)" for something you wish to use in A:M.

 

Note that the file size will be huge.

Thanks for the reply Robert. If I were to import the images as Targa files, is there a way to compile them so as each image remains onscreen for 45 frames or so before going to the next image?

That is a very thorough video.

Thanks Robert!.

 

I learned something there... and I thought I knew everything there was to know about that area of A:M. :)

I don't think I've ever used the image properties 'Speed' value.
