Is it possible to render frames of animation in a Bmp film strip style?
I`m using rendered images for a 2D project
| I had this a while back, nope there is no way of doing it in max.|
You have to render out seperate pics and join them in a paint program.
However, i made a program to take a load of bmp or jpg files and smack em next to each other and save the result as a bmp.
That is at home tho, so i will try and hunt it out once i get back from work.
| I think the easiest way is to render each frame saperatly. |
AFAIK you can save them autmatic by 3dsmax (eg.: frame0001.bmp) and then set them together with a paint program, like psp or something else.
| yes,... this is no problem.|
I have a script to do this,... I don't have it on me at the moment(at work) but I will post the script here later tonight.
The script allows you to either render directly to a strip (rows and columns customizable) or take a folder of images and make them into a single image.
| sorry, forgot about this. I haven't used my script in a while, so I don't have it handy but you can get one here that does the same thing. (mine was a modification of this one anyways)|
go to the scripts section,... scroll down quite a ways,... look for the script "tile render"
| cinfa made an absolutely wonderful tool there at Blitzcoder...|
avi4bmp or something like that...sorry, don't have the direct link to the thread...
It's an standalone wonder (no install!) that will grab ur avi, and if u remember the res you rendered, that's it.
Yet though, no tool of this type, in an standard pc, would allow you put a hollywood film into BMP strip, hehehee...
Imho is one of the more useful free tools made lately, and I mean not only in Blitz world...Or at least, to me.
Cinfa and the other guy, which mainly made the code, I think, can't remember the name.
They were very kind to share it freely.
| oh, yeah|
here it is
dig for the project avi4bmp
trust me: it does worth it.
it support animated gif and a lot of stuff extra to the main feature...
| Yep I`ve tried it - excellent piece of kit! |
