How to Render a Maya Project Into a QuickTime Movie

In recent years, 3D images and animation have become common on the Internet. One program that is often used to create this content is Autodesk Maya. Maya's tools have taken the field of animation from specialists and made it possible for almost anyone who has the program (and the necessary hardware) to produce his own animations. However, one question the budding animator faces is what format she should render her video file to. Many videos on the Internet are in the QuickTime format, and if you would like to output your animation as a QuickTime video, the process is fairly straightforward.

Instructions

    • 1

      Start the Maya application. Select "File" from the menu at the top and choose "Open." In the dialog box, find a project you want to render, select it and click "Open."

    • 2

      Go to "Render Settings." Choose "Multiple Files" for the "Output." From the "File Type" options, choose "QuickTime."

    • 3

      Enter the frame numbers from the timeline for where you want to start and end the render or simply choose to render all of them.

    • 4

      Enter the name for your animation and the location to save it to. Click on the "Render" menu in the "Render Module."

    • 5

      Select "Batch Render" from the options. Maya will render and save your QuickTime animation. Keep in mind that this may take a while, depending on the size, length and complexity of the animation as well as the power of the system on which you are rendering it.
