Instructions outlining how to create a movie of a 3D file using Esko Studio Visualizer and Adobe® Photoshop®.


 In Studio Designer create the Image sequence files

  1. Click Export in the Studio Designer Window.
  2. Select Image Sequence.
  3. Choose the type of animation you desire from drop down list.
  4. Enter Duration, which will affect the speed of the animation and also how many frames will be exported.
  5. Enter the Width and Height you desire for the video.
  6. Enter a frame rate you desire (fps); 25 fps is a good setting for a standard video to be shown on a computer. Make a note of this setting for future reference.
  7. The frame rate "x" duration will produce the quantity of files (4 sec @ 25 will produce a 100 files).
  8. Click Save As… and give the file a name, "Frames" for example. It’s a good idea to save into a folder, since there will be many files. The rest of the files will be based off that name with a number sequence following it. The first frame will be “file name” and “000”, so for this example “frames000”.
