View Full Version : animating outputwidth

12 December 2008, 03:28 PM

if i wanted to change the outputwidth and height as well as the cropping at every frame in a rendering, would there be a more elegant way than placing the render() command inside a loop? Instead of calling render() once for an entire sequence, i would call it once for every frame. I tested and it works. but maybe there's a better solution.

nope - renderWidth and renderHeight are part of the parameters that are locked down even before #preRender; can't animate those for any renderer that works through the Max APIs. Similarly, you can't animate the Region/Crop/Blowup area.

Doing a frame-by-frame loop is the way to go about it, sadly.

ah well. At least i have full control inside a loop. thx, anyways.
