I am very new to ae so forgive me if this is a mistake people ask often. I created an animation in AE using vector shapes from illustrator. I now want to be able to export the animation to an image sequence that is high resolution so that I can print it out and make a flip book. I tried exporting to TIFF and JPEG sequences but the resolution was 72 dpi. Is there a way around this? Should I export to a movie and then breakdown the images? Or is there a setting I can change that I can't seem to find?
Video doesn't care for DPI/ PPI, only absolute pixels. You will have to create sufficiently large comps and do the math yourself.
Ok, thanks! I saw a forum that I can run File>scripts>scale and that should change everything correct without my animation changing?
AE thinks in absolute pixels and while scaling comps and basic transforms may give you a base to work from, other things will need to be adjusted manually like stroke widths, effects parameters or keyframe timing. You know, travelling 50 pixels over 10 frames will simply look different from traveling three or four times the distance in the same time...
