Chapter 15. Creating Output > Exporting Still-Image Sequences

Exporting Still-Image Sequences

You can export a program or clip as a sequence of still images. Premiere numbers the frames automatically, and if you want, you can specify the starting frame number. Many animation and 3-D programs can import video images only as a numbered sequence of still-image files.

To export a still-image sequence:

1.
In the Export Movie dialog box, click the Settings button.

The General panel of the Export Movie Settings dialog box opens.

2.
From the File Type pull-down menu, choose a still-image sequence format (Figure 15.19).

Available still-image formats depend on your platform. TIFF Sequence, Targa Sequence, and GIF Sequence are available for both Mac and Windows.

3.
Specify how much of the program you want to export in the Range pull-down menu (Figure 15.20):

Work Area— to export only the part of the program below the work area bar.

Entire Project— to export the entire program from the timeline.

4.
Set the following options:

Open When Finished— opens the rendered movie automatically upon completion.

Beep When Finished— alerts you when the rendering process is complete by making your computer beep.

If you don’t want to use these options, leave them unchecked.

5.
To specify settings in another category, click the Next or Previous button or choose a category from the pull-down menu.

If necessary, specify the Video, Keyframe and Rendering, and Special Processing settings. If you are exporting a GIF sequence or animated GIF, click Advanced Settings in the Export Movie Settings dialog box. (See the following section for more details.)

6.
In the Export Movie Settings dialog box, click OK.

The Export Movie Settings dialog box closes, and you return to the Export Movie dialog box.

7.
Specify a destination and file name, and click Save (Figure 15.21).
