Chapter 16. Output

Chapter 16. Output

Finally.

At the beginning of the book, your project and compositions were compared to a musical score. Now that your sheet music has been written and rehearsed, it's time to put on the show.

In your case, the show is a movie file or image sequence of a rendered composition. You may create a movie for computer presentation, via CD-ROM or the Web. Using additional equipment or a service bureau, your animation may be transferred to a broadcast video format, or even to film. On the other hand, your movie may servesimply as a pre-rendered element of a larger composition. Whatever the case, the variables in the rendering process are the same.

Your particular output goals (and unfortunately, your equipment's limitations) help determine a wide range of output settings. This chapter helps guide you through the multitude of options. You'll also apply the knowledge you've acquired up to this point (have you been reading those sidebars?) regarding your output goals. This chapter can't cover every output specification, but it does provide you with the knowledge to ask the right questions, and to derive your own answers.
