View Full Version : Cannot Export out to QT Movie

07 July 2010, 03:41 AM
I'm trying to export out a .qt movie.

I've got everything set right and when I batch render the file Maya seems to work just fine. It's a 35 frame animation. Very short and takes about 5 min to render out.

If I go to the directory projects>Filename>images I can even see the .qt file there while Maya is rendering it. As soon as Maya gets done. The .qt file disappears.

Any ideas?

I'm amusing you mean quicktime. What most people do is render a image sequence and then convert that to a quicktime. Quicktime pro/after effects and handle that nicly.

Rendering to a movie file is dangourous, say one frame fails, you loose your whole render.

yea i would just render an image sequence. you can use quicktime and "open image sequence" then export it out as a movie if you don't have editing software
