If you are using Windows did you install Apple's Quicktime. I did not becuse of support. I doe nor expect to see a a Quicktime option in rendet video.
Download QuickTime 7.7.9 for Windows
Important: QuickTime 7 for Windows is no longer supported by Apple. New versions of Windows since 2009 have included support for the key media formats, such as H.264 and AAC, that QuickTime 7 enabled. All current Windows web browsers support video without the need for browser plug-ins. If you no longer need QuickTime 7 on your PC, follow the instructions for uninstalling QuickTime 7 for Windows.
Yes, I have. I use it with After effects or Media Encoder. Besides, I should really see an option to render to AVI and I don't see one...
Try installing QuickTime again. I just downloaded and installed it and had a quicktime option in render video Adobe media Encoder Quicitime the encoder my animation into a .mov file. I am now uninstalling Quicktime for it is unsupported and has security issues. The size of the .mov is huge compared to a mp4
Thank you, that's very helpful. I will try to reinstall.
Yes, the size is huge but that's the price to pay to preserve alpha channels...although I have yet to see whether he render from Photoshop actually does that.
I am still puzzled as to why AVI is not an available option. I also need to sort out the lopp from hell issue, as it makes the whole system unusable while Photoshop is rendering and that cannot be right.
Thank you very much for your posts. I will try reinstalling QuickTime tonight.
Yes. That works for MOV after reinstalling Quicktime. Thank you. Not sure why it was working in After Effects and Encoder but not Photoshop, but that did the trick.
If anyone has any idea about the total focus and resource hogging when rendering and/or about getting an AVI with alpha out of Photoshop, please please ley me know. I leave the thread open if that's ok, but thanks a lot for getting me up and running with the MOV
