Thread: Rendering to MOV

  1. #1

    Rendering to MOV

    I have a big scene that I'm trying to render with a farm service (Garage Farm). My problem is that the scene uses several image sequences for textures and they say that I can't use them, I have to use .mov. I'm having trouble converting the sequence. Especially since I don't have QuickTime installed. I figured I can load it into layout as a composite and render but I can't find any format options for video, let alone mov. Can someone remind me how to do this? I haven't rendered to video since I was in school 16 years ago.

    Could you download the free davinci resolve and use that to render it out to a .mov, or any other editing app?

    Well that was my first thought. I edit with HitFilm so I tried don't it in there. My sequence is a weird resolution, like 3000 x 1124 or something and it gives me an error saying the height and width have to be factors of 4 and 8 or something.

    Free version of resolve wont work then as you are restricted to 1920/1080. Blender should be able to import it into its editor and then render out a .mov from there, or maybe Natron.

    I've never used blender for video but I do have it installed I'll give it a shot. Thanks.

    It's been a while, but free software Shotcut once helped me converting to/from MOV files.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I installed it and loaded my sequence but I don't see mov as an export option.

    Tried blender and found a tutorial. Sadly blender doesn't have a mov output option either.

    In blender in the output tab, looks like a printer, select FFmpeg video as your output under file format and then under encoding select h264 or animation codec

    I actually figured it out with Shotcut. The downside is that I don't know anything about compression for QuickTime so the files are massive. But right now all that matters is that they got done. It's rendering on the farm now.
