Saving a Still-Image Sequence


Opening a still-image sequence is simple — just use the Import Media dialog — but what if you want to create your own still-image sequences? No problem.

  1. If you want to render only a portion of your project, create a time selection and/or solo the tracks you want to include in the still-image sequence.

  2. From the File menu, choose Render As. The Render As dialog is displayed.

  1. In the File name box, type the base file name you want to use for rendered images. Files will be numbered automatically using this file name.

  2. Choose Image Sequence from the Save as Type drop-down list.

  3. Choose an image format from the Template drop-down list.

  4. Select the Render loop region only check box if you want to save only the portion of the project that is contained within the loop region. Loop Playback does not need to be selected for this option to work.

  5. Select the Stretch video to fill output frame size (do not letterbox) check box when you are rendering to an output format with a slightly different aspect ratio than your project settings. This will prevent black bars from appearing on the top and bottom or the sides of the output.

  1. Select the Render using networked computers check box if you want to queue multiple renders on a single computer or to harness the power of those other computers to speed up your rendering times. For more information, see Network Rendering.

  2. Select the Use project output rotation setting check box if you’re rendering a rotated project and want to use the Output rotation setting from the Project Properties dialog for your rendered file.

    When the check box is cleared, the media is rotated according to its Media Properties setting, but the project itself is unrotated—you can use this setting to proof your project on an unrotated display.

  3. Click the Save button. A dialog is displayed to show rendering progress.

    When rendering is complete, you can click Open Folder to open the folder where you saved the files.
