View Full Version : LW 10 Rendering Quicktime No Options

I noticed this with 9.6.1 Beta and in 10 also, on my Mac dual quad OS version 10.6.7. In Render Globals when I have quicktime selected there isn't any options when you click Options tab. Is it me, my machine or is everyone having this issue. I have been just rendering in 9.6 if I need to render something with an alpha.

Always render to an image sequence using PNG or other format that supports an alpha channel.

Rendering to a video format can be dangerous, if you suffer a crash with video you'll have to start the render from the start with a image sequence you can pickup where you left off.

Since you can run LW 10 you have snow leopard, and there's limited quicktime access for 64 bit applications. So, no options dialog for qt movies.

Render images, then you have the option of optimising compression. Also if you get a blackout or some similar disaster you can start rendering from the last saved frame.
