Title: Real newby questions
Post by: EdBardet on December 11, 2013, 01:18:14 pm
Before I upgrade to 3 with animation, there is one basic question I have. I've read all I could in the wiki, etc.

It is my understanding that when an animation is complete, you end up with a series of files. Is there any further editing tools in TG that produces a finished movie or do I need to input this series of jpegs/bmps, etc into a movie editor?

Thanx,
Ed

No

Yes.
But this is not a short coming. There are just a ton of programs that do this very well, and some of the good programs that do it are even free, depending on your OS. So adding the ability to TG would be a lot of effort for not much reason.

After Effects is what I use, but there are a lot of programs mentioned by other members in other threads. I cant remember right now what they are. But if you want some program names just ask, Im sure you'll get some good answers.
