Render composition to MOV

edited May 2012 in LAB
If like some users, you got 60 layers, it could be hard for your machine.
So this small feature should be very useful to you ;)


  • Ok, it's now available in version 0.53.
    I'm waiting for your feedback :)
  • tested with 3 mov files, not so big, h264 codec (i know is bad :)

    anyway, work GREAT the resulted .mov file play fluid and without problem also with the preview mode 

    (click spacebar on mov file)

  • Cool, thanx for let us know !
  • Hi ! It works perfectly but I tried to render a selection but it didn't take my transitions (automatic or advanced), my layers just appeared ! Did I miss something ?
  • Hello @rlalire,

    Automatic transitions are designed for the dashboard, but not for the timeline since there are keyframes. There are processed in realtime, so not compatible with rendering a composition (not realtime).
    One solution could be to record your output with Syphon Recorder : see this tutorial.

  • Thank you ! I tried but it's not fluid, maybe it's because of my configuration (MacBook Pro i7 2,8ghz 8go ram)...
  • Hello @rlalire,

    If you have a MacBookPro 13'' with a low graphic card, I guess this is the reason why you want to render your composition : saving power.
    In this case, you should use keyframes with compositions, then render your composition.

    Best. Philippe
