FlyThrough Producer Dialog, Output Section

Contains controls that are used to specify the source view and to affect the general appearance of the sequence during playback in the Movies window.

SettingDescription
View Sets the view that displays frames as they are recorded or previewed and the view in which frames are rendered.
Render Setup Lists the saved rendering setups.
Render Mode Sets the rendering method — Wireframe, Visible Edges, Filled Visible Edges, Smooth, or Luxology. The higher the quality of the rendering, the higher the quality of the sequence and the greater the time required to create it.
Antialias If on, images are antialiased. Antialias settings are defined in the Settings tab of the Render Setup Manager dialog.
Speed (ticks/frame) Sets the amount of time, in 1/60 second ticks, that each frame in a sequence displays during playback. The fastest possible speed setting is 60 frames per second. However, the actual playback speed on your system depends on the speed of its CPU and display hardware and the amount of information that changes between frames. If your system is fast enough, you can play a sequence while you continue to work.
Note: The Speed setting is stored only in ".fli" files. It is ignored when you save sequences in any other format.
Resolution X, Y Sets the resolution of the sequence in the X and Y directions. Higher resolution can substantially increase both the time and memory required to record and play back a sequence.
Tip: The lower the resolution, the faster each frame is rendered. For fastest speed, use the ".fli" file format and a low resolution to test your lighting and camera settings. Once you are satisfied with the production, record the sequence in a different file format, such as Targa, at a higher resolution.
Gamma Correction Sets the brightness of the images in the output file(s). The default value is 1; the valid range is 0.1 to 3.0. Increasing the Gamma Correction setting lightens the images; decreasing it darkens the images.
Stereo If on, separate images are created for the left and right eyes, using a color scheme suitable for viewing with special red-blue 3D glasses. The resulting sequence, when viewed through the glasses, creates the illusion of three-dimensional depth.
