Export to FBX Dialog Box

The Export FBX dialog box allows you export scenes, sequences or your entire animatic into animated Filmbox (.fbx) files. This can be useful if your project has 3D elements. The exported Filmbox (.fbx) file will contain all the 2D and 3D elements in your animatic as well as their animation. You can them import it in a third-party software and use it as a template to create the 3D animations for your production.

Parameter Description

Destination Path

Path

Lets you specify the name and location of the XML/AAF file you are creating.

File Pattern

Allows you to enter the prefix or the pattern for the names of the exported files. You can leave this field blank to use the default file naming pattern, type in a file name to use it as a prefix, or type a full pattern using the following variables:

  • %t - Project title
  • %a - Act number
  • %q - Sequence number
  • %s - Scene number
TIP: Numbers used in file naming patterns are automatically padded by zeros as needed. You can type a number between the % sign and the variable letter to determine the amount of characters you want the variable to use. For example, with the variable %4s, scene 1 would appear as scene 0001.
