    Electricimage IMG file format ?

    Rod Lord Level 1

      I have always relied heavily in the past on Aftereffects being able to render out to Electricimage IMG files.

       

      I use these extensively for both still and animated 3D texture files.

       

      Having upgraded to CS6 AE apparently no longer has this capability - it will import footage in the IMG format but there is no option to output to it.

       

      I am hoping someone can tell me how to correct this please - is there a plugin or something that I need to purchase ?

       

      I have asked the same question on the EIAS forum but as yet no info.

       

      Thank you in hope ...

          After Effects CS4 was the last version to export to ElectricImage format.

           

          You are the first person in the years since that went away to mention it.

            Thanks Todd - that may be because I've only recently upgraded from AE v 6 running on a G4 with another 11 cpus in a render farm - all of which have been running flawlessly for the last 10 years.

             

            I use EIAS on just about every project I do - maybe no other AE users do ?

             

            You see once upon a time in the dark and distant past people didn't specialise so much ... let's call them Renaissance men and women. They even had to use paint brushes ... as well as Rotrings ... and pencils ... and airbrushes with actual compressors ... and Rostrum cameras ... and even computers as well ... all on the same projects.

             

            Turns out it's a good job I've hung onto the old G4 and the renderfarm ... I have just had to import an uncompressed movie from AE CS6 in order to export it in IMG format.

             

            Thanks for your responses - I will try to stop having to ask questions.
