Author Topic: Can you automate animation export?  (Read 155 times)

Hi!
I often find myself wanting to export an animation. I render an image or export my maps, then I turn a slider up 0.1, and repeat. Doing that for 60 images just isn't very economical.

I'm sure scripting is the way to go, but I can't for the life of me figure it out. I've never written a script and I can't find any tutorials for it either. Do I have to learn Python from scratch?

Does anyone know how to do this?
Thanks in advance

So I found that you can animate within Substance Player by using the $time variable in a function graph.
Does anyone know if I can export TGAs based on time?
So I'll tell it to export a picture every 24ths of a second for example.
Thanks

Hi,

In the Player you can export the images using the "Export as bitmap" button. Here you'll be able to choose the fps value and the time range.
