I currently have 2.4 build 3087. What new options will be added with the upgrade? (ie. unlimited layers in preditor, multi video output avi qt mpeg1 &2 with audio sync.)
2.8 will have the ability to flatten the timeline to allow more video layers, output to AVI, and compatibility with the new DV I/O board.
What about output to Mpeg2? Any chance of that?
We have not got the full feature list yet in tech support. I don’t know if MPEG2 will be a direct output, but there are plenty of shareware programs out there that convert AVI to MPEG2.
Time, as always, is the issue. If I can avoid having to re-render something it saves time, and creates a comparative advantage.
Will the output (AVI) also have audio? If I remember you can output avi now but there is no audio with it.
Yes, you can output AVI from within Panamation/Animator Compositor and there’s no audio. Also, there’s a 2GB file size limitation. (Pr)editor will currently export audio with no video.
The new export will export an entire timeline to a single AVI file with audio. I’m not sure if there’s a file size limitation, I certainly hope there isn’t but have not heard for sure yet.
This will be a HUGE help with our production workflow.
