Great. What I plan to do is send to Adobe Encoder and export as quicktime png so i can retain alpha.
I will be importing that quicktime to Toonboom...where of course no dynamic link. I will create scenes in character creator at a much higher scale than the toonboom scene so that I can have the ability to zoom in on character with toonboom camera and not lose quality... (I'll just use toonboom to scale puppet down as needed...)
This being the case, "render as vector" only matters so that the puppet does not degrade when converted to the quicktime movie? OR does it not matter in my scenario? (I'm aware that after I convert to quicktime, I lose vector abilities... )
Right. For recorded or live, "render as vector" just means that things will still look good at 101%+ scale, regardless of how they're exported. I think it should be fine for your workflow.
