Export to QuickTime Movie Dialog Box

The Export to QuickTime Movie dialog box lets you export your animation as a QuickTime movie. If you want to render a QuickTime movie with lossless compression and transparency, you can use the Animation video codec with the colour depth set to Millions of Colours +.

If you added burn-in information to your scene, it will be included in your exported file—see Burn-In Node.

For tasks related to this dialog box, see Exporting QuickTime Movies.

Parameter Description



Lets you select a folder in which to save your movie and give it a file name for the export.

Display Source

Export from Display Node

If there is no Display node in your scene, the only available option will be Display All. This renders nodes in your scene, including ones that are not connected to anything, in the order in which they're listed in the Timeline view. Hence, it is always recommended to have a Display node connected to your scene's main composite, and to render from that Display node, so as to have control over what is rendered.

Lets you enter the frame range to export.


Resolution list
