Options

Export One Image Per Layer

Keeps layers on separate images instead of flattening each panel’s layers into one flat image file.

 

Always Nest Layers:  Nests the scene's layers inside one single clip. When this option is deselected, layers will not be nested into clips and will export as individual video tracks. This is true as long as a panel has either layer motion or a camera move, as it is not possible to export both without nesting. If a panel contains both motion on layers and a camera move, the panel will be nested into the V1 track. option to nest your scene's layers inside one single clip.

Export Camera Frame

Includes the camera frame’s black border.

Maintain image size throughout scene

Prevents image files from being different sizes depending on the camera frames and movements on each panel. To avoid the image from being pixelated when the camera is zoomed in, the image must be rendered larger. The area where the camera is the most zoomed in must be the same size as the project resolution. This means that the rest of the image has to be exported in proportion to the smallest area.

Bitmap Format

Lets you select a bitmap image format:Targa (*.tga)Photoshop (*.psd)Portable Network Graphics (*.png)Jpeg (*.jpg).

Export Markers at scene beginning

Places a chapter marker at the beginning of each scene. These markers are used to find the in point of each scene when conforming from Final Cut Pro to Harmony. The marker are named "Scene: NAME_OF_SCENE" and have a unique scene ID and chapter marker as their comment.

Export scenes references track

Generates .png images with the scene named burned in. When exporting to Final Cut Pro, this option must be enabled. The track will be used by Harmony when conforming the XML from Final Cut Pro to find the scene in the XML.

Export captions

Includes all captions in XML when exporting, so you can see it as a comment (metadata) in Final Cut Pro or Premiere. You can edit the data of the caption and conform back to Storyboard Pro.

Include Rich Text Formatting: Exports captions in RTF format. Deselect this option to export captions as plain, readable text.
