About PI and After Effects, help me!!!
on Dec 28, 2005 at 10:32:51 am

Hi folks, I'm from Brasil.
I would like to know how to export videos with super emitters (like a explosion)
to After Effects. I already tried but the explosion lost much details.
I exported it from PI to After Effects in AVI format (Normal channel and Alpha Channel). Is there another way to export the video without losing quality?
I read in tutorial that's possible to export like filmstrip, but I coudn't do that.
I also tried to save a video in many AVI configurations to use as background in PI
but it didn't work (the image does not appear, everything is black).
...and ... is there another way to export the video without losing quality?
Thanks for all
Marcos

Render in pIllusion as a TGA image sequence, and check the "save alpha" option in the output options dialog. pI3 for Windows does not allow alpha channels with AVIs.

Allen:

Will this issue be addressed in the near future? (I gotta' get this in whenever I see it mentioned of course. And it's been a while, ;-) ) "Uncompressed" and that fantabulous HUFFYUV codec (even better) would be really nice. Or just allow export to Quicktime on the Windows platform.

May I also ask why this has been missing for so long now? Naturally, not being a programmer this is probably going to be a stupid statement, but it seems like adding support for one oR the other would be a relatively simple task. Is it a licensing issue with Quicktime or something?

Best regards,
Tim

Yes, this will be fixed in a 3.x update sometime in the next few months.
