The OpenQuickTime Video Options dialog box is used to configure the video compression settings when exporting a QuickTime movie file on Linux.
On Windows and macOS, Harmony uses Apple QuickTime to export QuickTime movies, and hence uses QuickTime's interface to configure video and audio compression settings for exporting movies. Since QuickTime is not supported on GNU/Linux, Harmony uses the OpenQuickTime library to create QuickTime-compatible movie files, which have a more limited set of compression settings.
- From the top menu, select File > Export > Movie.
The Export Movie dialog box opens.
- Set Movie Format to QuickTime Movie (*.mov).
- Click on the Video Options button.
- In the Node view, locate your scene's Write node.

Lets you select a codec. By default, the following codecs will be available:
For JPEG-type codecs, lets you set the JPEG compression quality. By default, this will be set to 85. Possible values range from 0 to 100. The higher the quality, the more disk space the resulting video file will take.
|fieldDominance||For codecs with interlacing. This is set to 1 by default. If set to 1, the first field will be encoded on odd frames, and the second field will be encoded on even frames. If set to 2, the first field will be encoded on even frames, and the second field will be encoded on odd frames.|
|compression||The amount of lossless compression to perform when exporting in PNG format. PNG compression is lossless, but higher compression settings will take longer to encode and decode.|
|packbits||For TIFF movies, this option adds extra lossless compression to the encoding.|
|lendian||Encodes data in little endian byte order, instead of big endian.|
