7. Importing and Exporting  > Importing and Exporting Motion Video

Importing and Exporting Motion Video

The next step for import and export is using moving video. Usually, people want to import animations created by a three-dimensional (3D) animation program or an effect sequence rendered from a compositing program. There is also the demand to export for Web pages, CD-Rom, or for material to be used in a compositing program like After Effects. All the already-mentioned procedures apply, including resizing and safe colors, but with slight differences. Also, you must decide between two choices for formats: movies or sequences of stills.

Let’s look at importing video first. The choice of whether to render as QuickTime, AVI, or PICT/TIFF sequences depends on several factors. The first and most important is: What format does your third-party application have as an export choice? Usually less-complex programs on Macintosh have only one choice—QuickTime. This does indeed make things simpler.
