Advanced Export

The Node view allows you to make advanced connections and isolate certain portions of your project. It also allows you to perform multiple exports from the entire node structure or from specific sections.

For this kind of process, use the Write node in the Node Library view. The Write node lets you render and output the connected image information. Using the Write node, you can export a project as a QuickTime movie or as image sequences. You can export one format at a time or both simultaneously.

To export an image sequence, you need to adjust a few settings in the Write node’s properties.

You can export image sequences as several different formats. Note that formats with transparency are premultiplied.

Format Description
TVG Toon Boom Vector Graphic. The Toon Boom vector proprietary format.
TGA (TGA1, TGA3, TGA4) Select TGA4 to export your sequence with an alpha channel (transparency).
SGI (SGI1, SGI3, SGI4) Select SGI4 to export your sequence with an alpha channel (transparency).
SGIDP (SGIDP1, SGIDP3, SGIDP4) Select SGIDP4 to export your sequence with an alpha channel (transparency).
OMFJPEG Exports your sequence as OMFJPEG files.
PSD (PSD1, PSD3, PSD4) Select PSD4 to export your sequence with an alpha channel (transparency).
PSDDP (PSDDP1, PSDDP3, PSDDP4) Select PSDDP4 to export your sequence with an alpha channel (transparency).
YUV Exports your sequence as YUV files.
PAL Exports your sequence as PAL files.
SCAN Exports your sequence as SCAN files.

PDF Exports your sequence as PDF files. Your drawings must be vector and all your Composite nodes must be set as Vector to obtain vector PDFs.

 

NOTE: The formats used if you need to output a vector format are .tvg and .pdf. You can also export a .swf movie.

To export a QuickTime movie, you need to adjust few settings in the Write node’s properties.
