Export to Video Dialog Box

The Export to Video dialog box lets you export your animation as a movie file.

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 a Movie File .

Parameter Description
Output

Video Format

Choose among the following output formats:

  • Quick Time Movie (*.mov): On Windows and macOS, Apple QuickTime must be installed in order to export QuickTime movies. On GNU/Linux, Harmony uses a more limited, open source QuickTime-compatible library which does not require additional software.
  • Windows Media Video (*.wmv): This option is available on Windows only. It requires Windows's Media Features component, which is pre-installed on most editions of Windows.

Output file

The full path and file name of the movie file to export.

Browse

Opens a dialog allowing you to browse to the desired export directory and enter the desired filename.

Display Source

Export from Display Node

Lets you select the display node from which to render your scene.

NOTE If there is no Display node in your scene, the only available option will be Display All. This renders all the nodes in your scene, including ones that are not connected to anything. You can add other Display nodes to your scene and connect them under specific parts of your scene to be able to render these parts only.

Export Range

All

Exports all the frames in your scene.

Frames

Lets you specify the frame range to export using the two input fields to the right. The first input field is for specifying the first frame to export, and the second one is for specifying the last frame to export. All the frames in-between, including the ones specified, will be exported.

Resolution

Resolution list

Lets you specify a resolution to export in relative to your scene's actual resolution:

  • Same as Scene Resolution: Exports a movie in the same resolution as your scene's resolution.
  • 3/4 of Scene Resolution: Exports a movie at 75% of the scene's width and height.
  • 1/2 of Scene Resolution: Exports a movie at 50% of the scene's width and height.
  • 1/4 of Scene Resolution: Exports a movie at 25% of the scene's width and height.
  • Custom: Allows you specify the preferred resolution of your exported video file, in pixels, in the Width and Height fields below.

Width / Height

Lets you specify the width and height of video file you wish to export, in pixels. To preserve your scene's aspect ratio, changing the value of the Width or Height field will automatically update the other field with a proportional value.
