Export Bitmap Window

The Export Bitmap window lets you export a storyboard project to bitmap files in .psd, .tga or .jpg format. The exported data includes a separate bitmap file for each panel in the storyboard.

NOTE: For .psd files, the transform and transition animations are not exported. However, camera moves are rendered into an independent layer.

For tasks related to this window, see Exporting to Bitmap.

Parameter Description

Destination Path


Lets you specify the location and name of the folder for the exported file.

File Pattern

Lets you enter a prefix for the file names. If you leave this field blank, by default, the resulting bitmap files will be named: storyboardname-shotnamepanelnumber.psd/tga/jpg.

Setup Bitmap Export Parameters

Bitmap Format

Lets you set the bitmap files to be in .psd, .jpg or .tga format.


Sets the resolution to be a quarter size, half size, or full size of the current storyboard resolution.

Image Zoom Level (%)

Sets the magnification of the image. Enter a value between 0 and 400. The default value is 85%.

Transparent Background

This option is only available when the Adobe Photoshop (.psd) file format is selected. By default this option is enabled and will export your .psd file.

Export Camera Frame

Exports the camera frame black border in the image file.

Rectify Static Camera

When this option is enabled, if there is a rotation in the camera, the camera frame will appear as straight and the image will be rotated instead. When disabled, the camera frame appears as rotated and the image is straight.

Include Camera Path

Ensures that the camera paths and control points appear inside the image. When this option is disabled, they might appear cropped if they exceed the camera frames area.

Allow Camera Scaling

This option is enabled by default. This ensures that when a very wide zoom camera movement is included in a panel, the image resulting from the export will be bigger in relation to the camera scaling used. If you disable this option, the exported image will not follow the camera scaling and export it to fit a normal camera frame.

Maintain Size Through Scene

Ensures that all images exported are the same size. If this option is disabled, it is possible that some images export to a bigger size, for example if there is a traveling camera movement.

Export Camera Keyframes

Prints each camera keyframe on your images.

Export Range

Lets you decide if you want to export the entire storyboard, specific shots, or the last panel you selected. You can enter a space between shot names or click Select to open the Scene Picker dialog box. You can select scenes by sequence (if your project contains sequences).

Open folder after export

Lets you view the location and contents of the exported folder when it is ready.
