.BMP export from After Effects CS5?
on Jul 12, 2010 at 2:54:59 pm

I know that under CS3, you were still able to export .bmp files from After effects using the File-Export option. However, under CS5, it seems that even this workaround is taken from us. As part of our workflow, we have to provide rendered movies in .avi, and still frames in .bmp format from the same project. Is there any remaining way to export directly to .bmp from After Effects without having to go through a third party program? Why has this former flawless functionality been reduced and finally removed in each new version of After Effects?

Thanks.

If you were using File > Export to create BMP files, you were using the QuickTime exporter. After Effects allows other applications to install exporters; QuickTime is the only one that did so with any regularity.

Apple doesn't provide a 64-bit version of QuickTime, just a 32-bit version. So QuickTime can't install exporters into the 64-bit After Effects application. So the QuickTime exporter for BMP isn't there.

Adobe Media Encoder CS5 provides a BMP exporter, by the way. You could use AME to render and export your After Effects composition.

Hi Todd,

I´m working on OSX and there is no way to export .bmp sequences from the Media Encoder.

Is there no possibility to do a .bmp sequence with my CS5 master collection?

Thank you!!
